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 :roll:

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