LMAO! I've seen a lot of people regretting introducing assassin snails in their tanks once they got rid of the "pest" snails. They were hoping to keep some other desirable snails in the same tanks but once the assassin snails start laying eggs by hundreds, there's no stopping a few dozens hatching and then remained buried until a few months later popping out as adults and attacking other snails.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!

Actually this is correct. I studied an abstract that experimented the reproduction process of Lymnaea stagnalis. They do sperm exchange in order for them to generate fertile eggs. I rescued a lone L. stagnalis (Oh, I know I am weird and sad.) and he never left me a few babies just when I needed more snails for my assassin snails before he passed away.

I think the dry portion you are looking for is decalcification due to acidic water. High nitrate can drop the pH a bit especially if your hardness levels are very low thus the shell suffers erosion or pitting.
