Rabbit snails a'plenty

I read that Rabbit snails are very slow at reproducing. I bought 7 adults 6 weeks ago and they showed up with 2 babies. Since then 11 more babies have hatched.

Consider the needs of your fish before acting on your desires.

You're probably right on both accounts. I will need an outlet for them soon.
We love them. They live for sand and carrots. We have a saying-'' At the heart of every rabbit fight is a carrot.''

Our adults are some yellow and some green. Most babies are yellow and green also, with one almost black and one almost white! One adults shell is dark caramel and one babies shell is black with a caramel spiral stripe.
