BEWARE!! Apple Snails like to get it on...

Be aware, rather.... I bought 4 adult apple snails, 3 java ferns, and 2 bundles of hornwort plants from petsmart. I ended up with a stowaway baby mystery(apple) snail, 4 snail egg sacs, and so far ive spotted 3 hatchling snails...WTF rite?!?! Just thought you should beware when putting more than one snail in the same tank...

It's Normal to get snail eggs and stow aways when you buy aquarium plants,

Egg sacs? Mystery snails lay clutches above waterline, not underwater. It shouldn't be hard to spot them and crush them if you don't want any more snails.

I just bought two java ferns, and found a hatchling apple snail. I was going to kill it, but I ended up donating it to my last years biology class. Now it's in a 10 gallon with some guppies.
