Yes I was hoping to breed mystery snails. I have done a little research on it, and I believe that if I got mine to lay eggs I would just leave them in the tank, as all of my tanks are tropical. Would buying 3-4 snails be enough so that I could breed them?

Max temp for snails should be 76 degrees only. If you can manage to determine their sexes, then you can make sure you are not getting an all male/female ratio.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Here are some Pomacea bridgesii eating snail jello. Excuse the slight suture damage due to previous owner's acidic water conditions. They're fed with plenty of foods and calcium pills. The shells are now repairing themselves.

Eating a celery..mmmm...

Yes, it does. It's a horned nerite snail (Clithon corona).

There's a mistake. This is a male, not female. Oops!
