snails are hermaphadites (sp?) which means they are asexual. that means it takes one! and this means it will soon be 20 then 70 then 900 if you get the picture. they usually also lay small clear sticky egg pouches on the glass, plant leaves,gravel, and any decorations in your tank, thus making them hard to find and soon more snails will pop up. whatever you do, do for your snail problem, i suggest not using any "snail concoctions" because your live plants probally will get vaporized overnight. i do however suggest plucking those suckers out everytime you see one, getting some clown loaches ( if your tank is BIG enough to support them ) because there good for keeping the snail population down, getting a killer snail ( dont know the scientific name or if there sold at LFS ) or even a freshwater puffer... otherwise plan on having snails for the life of the tank.
