Red face Just Found out my Snail isnt A Boy....

So i have a golden apple snail, originally named Bongo. I assumed he was a male. So Bongo was removed from my community due to the Ich treatment and all and is in a 1.5 gal tank by itself. Last night i was watching my betta and molly chase each other ( looked like tag lol) and when my betta went to the bottom to rest, i see some wierd thing hanging on the glass beside him. So im like " is that poop stuck to the glass?" So i look closer and its MOVING! So guess what... IT's A ITTY BITTY BABY SNAIL!!!! i So I rush to get it out and move it with the other snail. So I was like, it must have come with the plants i just bought. Then this morning i was looking for my baby snail and i came across this geletin like stuff with lil white dots in it. And this stuff is popping up everywhere. And now im like Bongo is a SHE!!! And she is laying eggs!!! So my new delima is how the heck do you take care of baby snails, and what do i name my Female snail ?
