I just got 4 trapdoor snails. To my surprise I have 3 baby snails this morning:19: . How long does it take for the baby snails to grow to mating size? Also, how many babies would they have on average?

Thanx for the info. I now have 7 babiesthumbs2: . I took out 6 so the fantails don't eat them, but will leave any others in the tank to see if the fantails will actually kill them.

I had asked a question about how long the snail's gestation is on a forum somewhere, don't think it was this one. I have more new snails, so, since the last batch was at Xmas, I will assume their gestation period is 3 months. Just an FYI.
