Thread: Snail Overload

    Most snails need a partner but they fertilize eachother which means that each mating results in atleast two batches of eggs. And many species can save sperm so that one mating is enough for a long time.

    Ok thank you for the information. I was thinking of adding a snail to my aquarium but I think perhaps not then. As a side note by the way, if I do get a snail and it run away, how long can they live outside of the wather?

    I am certainly seeing a population explosion! My husband cannot believe the number of snails all friom the original one. I have basically given up on reducing the number. I tried "Had a Snail" from my lsf but it did NOTHING! I recently bought a dojo loach and he is eating the eggs, so there is hope that the snails will be controlled. Otherwise I guess I will learn to love them. :)

    Well they are cute, but if they breed so fast, woult it soon be no food for them and no room for the fish?

    It might, but by the time there are that many I will have my bigger tank set up and the small one can be just for the snails. Or I can get rid of them by tearing down the tank.
