    Have you ordered any plants lately? I've heard some tend to come with sometimes.

    Who knows though =)

    Hello kuba,

    Snails can store sperm for several months. Have you looked around for a clutch of eggs? :) After several months, and if there is still only a single snail in the tank, the snail may lay eggs but they won't be fertile.

    Or as mentioned by ALCMiller, they could have hitched a ride in on some new plants?

    Glad we could help! I've read that some people like to dip their plants in either a little bleach wash or really cold water to remove some of the critters that like to tag along with the plants.

    Cheers.
