Exclamation First time with a baby snail

Well.. i have got 4 scalares, 2 kiss gouamis 1 bamboo shrimp 1 apple snail and one zebra nerite snail! today i noticed a really small baby snail that i think that it is born by my zebra, but im not sure :P! is there any problem with these fish i have ( i mean would they eat it?) and must i cover it or move it to another tank till it grows up? also is there any other thing i have to do to look after it! thanks :)

yes fish will eat it. Theres probably at least several more you haven't seen yet. I dont know if theres really much you could do. Attempting to move it may just wind up crushing it.

if i cover the place it is with something so it cant escape, until it grows up? would it be able to eat in there?

they need brackish water to develop which the other fish won't tolerate. Best to seperate it and give it a go with a bit of marine salt. That is IF it is a neritina natalensis baby.

it is really small, and if i try to touch it, it will crash.. also it spends most of its time in a day out of the water!

If your like me and hate snails, crush 'em.

They also produce VERY fast, I once had one snail in a tank and that boomed up to 100 in less than a week.
