My ramshorn snails have babies with 0.7 cm or bigger.

Yea ur gonna have to specify the type of snails as theres lots of types in aquariums nowadays. I dont recommend 85F for mysterys, not that they will die, but thats about 3-4 degrees above what is recommended in the broad spectrum of temperatures they can tolerate. Higher temps will make them grow faster, and can induce spawning but 80 is more than enough.
