The Apple Snail (Ampullariidae) Website

lots of good info there. Mine laid eggs all the time but no babies. The egg clutch would dry out. It is really important that you have the correct humidity.

If you think I am too abrasive there is a little triangle icon in the bottom left of your screen to "report post".

mine laid eggs all the tiem as well, clutch just dried out or rainbows ate it.

i know that the snails usually lay their eggs on land on the edge of the water were they can stay moist.

in teh aquarium though, this exposes them to the lights form the aquarium and in temps (at least in my tank) that are higher at the surface and dries them out

I was simply stating that even if they lay eggs they most likely will not hatch I doubt turning lights off would help

you will have to try different things.

I wouldn't do the fan option, that will make them dry out quicker. The wet paper towel or toilet paper is an excellent idea though.


Another I have read is where they remove the clutch all together and float it in the tank on styrofoam or a margarine tub lid. I can't see this working because if it is drying out at the rim of the tank, it will dry out at the center.
