Most snail don't actually need mates to reproduce so both your snail are probably laying eggs

Mystery snails have separate sexes.

It would be interesting if they had babies, but at the same time I like my tank the way it is now. I could setup another, but I just don't want to end up taking it down in a few months to move it. Moving one tankful of critters is enough for me.
