If they are climbing out of the aquarium a lot it is a sign that your water quality sucks and you need to do a water change asap!
i had a lid, they were climbing o to the lid and just sitting there!!!
i think it was cuz my fish tried to eat them.

Mystery snails are so fun! They can get pretty big, and shouldn't have babies unless a female is pregnant when you buy her.
