What to do with mystery snail clutch

TheBadPilot

went away for about 2 weeks and when I came back my mystery snail layed a clutch of eggs I don't really want them and they already got hard any advice on what to do with them

I get about 2 clutches weekly, i just grab them with a paper towel and throw them in the trash. Already got an army of rabbit snails, only 1 snail army allowed at a time!

The thing with me is I would feel terrible just killing them or throwing them out

They will hatch about 80-100 snails so keep that in mind. ;)

Yikes at that point that many would devour all my plants

Mine have quit breeding for no reason that I can figure.
Are they Mystery Snails or Apple Snails? Mystery Snails don't eat plants.

quick question for some who might know do dwarf gouramis eat baby snails?
 

LizStreithorst

No they don't.

I don't think so, but pea puffers will. Do your research before getting some though (I like them, but they aren't the easiest to keep).

No they don't. You might check out the :Buy, Sell, Trade forum. Who knows, somebody there might be looking for a clutch of eggs..

You need to have 50 posts to access that part of the forum, and TheBadPilot isn't there yet.

Sorry, I didn't notice until you mentioned it. What a shame.

Your plants are safe. In all the years I have kept mystery snails in well planted aquariums no plants have suffered.
