My snails are getting busy!

Came home today to find my mystery snails getting it on hahaha. Now, the question is, with a tank full of angels, tetras and a few platys, should i just let the eggs hatch and let the fish have a snack ( i have some puffers that would rather enjoy them as well) or should i scrape them put and let them meet the toilet gods? I think my fish would eat them up without a problem.

You're lucky enough to even have snails, the stores around here don't sell any type of snail except pond snails or shrimp except ghost shrimp.

Sure that would be great I love these kinds of snails(even if they are able to overpopulate an aquarium). PM me and we can work something out.

Put on some old Barry White on stereo, and place a copy of TFH next to the tank ,and they'll really get busy then.:lol:

If you do decide to dispose of the eggs, either freeze for 48 hours or crush completely.

This is just to prevent any potential outbreaks.

I'd say let the fishies have a yummy snack...

Mystery Snail
 
I have one mystery snail in with a male betta, would there be enough food for the snail or should I add him more?:-)

Well my 2 snails seem to get busy every afternoon, but no eggs yet. I got worried cause they were both on the filter intake for like a whole day. After a day of that without them moving, i took em off, but then I had to leave for work. I hope they aren't dead :/
