I noticed some nerite eggs on some mopani wood so I started a breeding tank with brackish water made from salt water AQ salt not regular AQ salt. They have been in there for over a week. How long do you think it will take for them to hatch? (if they hatch at all)

Also, does a snail breeding tank need to be filtered and cycled or can I just do water changes like a betta tank?

Got my 1st hitch-hikers when I picked up a few shrimp on Saturday! They don't look like Apple Snails (2 of them), but not sure beyond that. I have a pic of the larger one in my emergancy album. They are dark brown and black, one side of the spiral is kind of flat while the other is convex, and their little trap door is deep inside their shell. Any clue what they could be? I have them QT in a quart jar on the windowcile (which I am hoping is okay since I have no where else to put them atm).

I have around 20 pond snails I am raising right now. Around this summer they should be ready for new homes. They are so tiny and such cute little things. I'll get pictures of them soon.

@_@ I have TOO MANY pond snails!!!

Ended up giving up some along with a bunch of amazon frogbit to my brother in return for some water sprite. ;)

Not that I don't love them. trust me, I do. Just was being overrun.

I am keeping one for my big tank and some are going over as fish food but I want a few others to find good homes.

My real goal though it to eventually breed mystery snails as I love their personalities more and also they don't have massive population explosions. They are also easier to find homes for when you get the nicer colors like Jade and Magenta. I just so happened to rescue these snails here off my petco plant and hatch 3 of the 4 egg sacs. Most of the babies died though, I think the larger snail ate the others so Sherlock who I am keeping is in it's own tank until it can enter my 10 gallon.

I'm currently waiting on my gold female to lay eggs - father is blue, so it should contain golds, jades, and blues. I bred the mother myself, so I know she's homozygous for light body and heterozygous for yellow shell. Not sure of genetics on father, though.
