snail 911 help maybe??
i dont know if mystery snails mate, i thought all snails were A-sexual, this is the photo, i touched them they broke and one kind floated mid air, they finally sunk and are doing it again. does it want its shell, one seems to be invading the other why the other is crawling away, as i write this Amber(gf) had to break them up again.. I dont know if i am reading to much but it doesnt look like a mutual thing lol??

It is a perfectly natural thing. They are mating. I doubt they are pleased that you keep interrupting them.

mystery snails lay a clutch of eggs (a large lumpy mass) somewhere in a humid but above-the-waterline spot. If you don't want them reproducing, simply remove the clutch when you find it.300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras
75 gallon community tank: black skirt tetras, danios, bronze corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
