One is a mystery snail and the other was labeled a "golden snail" at the store. How long does it take for them to grow?
They are both Mysteries, some places call them Golden or Apples. Have you seen them attached to each other? Mystery eggs have to be just above the waterline to hatch. If they're in a cup or the tank , they won't hatch.
Sometimes they will lay them in the water due to stress .
If they're in a small tank being removed for cleaning, you won't get babies. You need a bigger stable tank that they can be left in during water changes.
