Sounds like your apple snail is a lady as nerites wont breed in freshwater ;)

Apple snails can hold sperm for an extended amount of time so that would be why you have eggs now. How long have you had the snail?

Yyou can sex apple snails by looking into there shells I believe, here is how you can do it though you obviously have a lady snail :P

Apple snail FAQ
For future reference.


Going to take a wild hunch and say you thought the tentacle like thing coming out on the left side of your snail was a penis. Its actually a breathing tube!


Current:
5g: Betta
20g Long: Endlers/Sorority/Cherry Shrimp
20g Long: Espei Tetras/Otos/Pgmy Cories/Assassin Snails

Well that makes sense :p
I've had her about 2 or 3 months maybe more.. she has grown a lot since I foot her. Should I leave them or take them out? My clown loach can have some as treats but keep or give awaythe rest. Any tips?

Unfortunately, I have no tips other than don't let them dry out. ive never tried to keep my snail eggs as I don't have the room for them.

I know people remove them and keep them in covered cups. Make sure you don't submerged the eggs either.
