it is possible the eggs simply were not viable.

Okay. Did some research on your behalf. Sometimes flies will lay their eggs among the snail eggs, even in home aquariums. It could be a maggot of some sort that you saw.

I also wonder if the eggs weren't viable. Maybe your current snails are not genetically capable of reproducing. I second your idea of getting new ones if you want to breed them.

If you haven't allready, check out www.applesnail.net for any helpful info. I found it an invaluable resource for snail knowledge.

I'm not sure what young rat lungworms look like, but don't apple snails have a chance to ccarry them? some of the google picks make it look black? maybe that's the issue?

I just glanced at the website linked and they mentioned worms so...~shrugs~. Best of luck though.

My wishlist:
-duckweed- -black and white marble, anything but VT-
-javamoss- -koi marble, anything but VT)
-hatchable brine shrimp eggs-
-indian almond leaves-
-Melano Halfmoon male-
-steel blue or royal blue CT or HM female-
