porcupine snails breeding

the pocupine snails i have recently gotten have laid countless eggs on the plants and yesterday there was a black scumline of baby snails at the surface how would i care for these?,the snails are not cheap to buy and are only avalible from 1 shop so growing them to adult would be worth the effort+plus they look great :D

it just seemed to me that for there price they were somehow difficult to breed maybe its simply lack of demand and few people supply them

Hmm... did you buy them or did they go for a ride on your plants?
