BEWARE!! Apple Snails like to get it on...

Be aware, rather.... I bought 4 adult apple snails, 3 java ferns, and 2 bundles of hornwort plants from petsmart. I ended up with a stowaway baby mystery(apple) snail, 4 snail egg sacs, and so far ive spotted 3 hatchling snails...WTF rite?!?! Just thought you should beware when putting more than one snail in the same tank...

Egg sacs? Mystery snails lay clutches above waterline, not underwater. It shouldn't be hard to spot them and crush them if you don't want any more snails.

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.

I just bought two java ferns, and found a hatchling apple snail. I was going to kill it, but I ended up donating it to my last years biology class. Now it's in a 10 gallon with some guppies.
