    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.

    Holy crap, do a massive water change NOW. Like, over 50%

    Why do you have ammonia? Where are you at in your cycle?

    Never let the ammonia above .25ppm.
    20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp. (work in progess) Recently added a few LIVE plants and driftwood, Woooohoooo!

    i have today it is not effecting nothing else, i have 2 snails and a pleco, do about 40 each day... i am not concerned with amonia at moment, I mean i am .50 was before the water change, sorry.. it raises up to .50 everyday before water change. then goes down to almost 0. I am really concerned about snail, it happens everytime they mate

    EDIT.. he is floating again... pushed him down and he is moving

    WTF.. so we left my room for a bit, came back and she was on her side, i was gonna discard since it looked dead, my gf said na give it some time, that was about 30 minutes ago, so I am getting ready for bed and it comes out of its shell, flips itself and is now halfway up the tank glass, anybody got any expierance with this, I think i am gonna name it Lazarous

    You really shouldn't have to do water changes that frequently to keep your ammonia under control. Read up on cycling your tank. But about the snails, mine did that from time to time too before I got the water quality down. They can actually control their buoyancy and will try to "float down stream" when conditions aren't right. So check your water and get back to us.
