ill try to get some pics up. they are a golden brown color with medium brown spots. the shell looks like mini mystery snail shells. the snails body is a medium to dark grey color. at this point they are about the size of a cooked grain of rice.

Any ideas?

my only live plants are some java moss which i added about two months ago. o didnt see any egg clusters when i added them. i do have a few mystery snail in the tank. i have two ivary snails and two blue mystery snails.

what could they be just curious.

You're excited now but will be frustrated when they infest your tank. :c3: Hopefully they will stay under control for you. Not sure what type they are without a pic.

i was suprised when i found a few baby snails in my tank.. happy cause they was cute and all. but then i had a population explosion!!!! there was snails everywhere. i got my clown loaches and they have been "fixing" my problem rather well. the three loaches are fat and healthy now :19:
