This might be a stupid question, but how exactly do ramshorns reproduce? I am thinking about adding one to my blind boys tank because he lets pellets fall sometimes and sometimes I can't find them to remove them and there is algae growing in his tank now. He's in a five gallon, btw.
I guess my question is if its possible to just add one to a tank and it be like, pregnant, lol. Should I QT a single ramshorn to make sure it wouldn't multiply? Because I don't want to have his tank overrun by snails and I can't add plants because the hood is cheap and won't support them. Plus, he's blind and I don't want to move around decor too much.
I know that if I have more than one they will multiply but I'm unsure if they carry eggs or how they lay them or whatever. If that makes sense..
