I've got like 4 of those that survived a 100% water change and just run around my tank. They hitch-hiked on a plant that didn't even live.

Haha i knew it! Those sneaky little rascals...come in like ninjas.

I'm gonna call him/her Squishie.

So i know they can reproduce pretty fast, but do they reproduce asexually or do they need a partner?

Pond snails for sure, I have them too they came on live plants. I dont think they need a partner to reproduce.

K thats whatbi thought. Their bioload shouldnt be anything to worry about in my NPT, ill just have to be extra vigilant not to over feed so it doesnt spawn little ones lol(although it is still a little one itself hehe).

Thanks guys.

There is never just one, and it will have babies no matter what you feed!
