I think they are neat. I don't think they need brackish water to breed. I only had 3-4 that hitchhiked in my tank, but I have at least 10 little ones now in my 10 gallon. I have more snail then fish.
2 apple snails and a mystery number of polka dotted snails.

Snails are cute little guys, but make sure you keep an eye on the hitch-hikers. I had some pond snails hitch a ride on plants I bought and they eventually took over the tank (even though I didn't overfeed). I eventually had to fish them all out and put them in a little 1 gallon. My tank is much cleaner now that they aren't around and my apple snail is thriving lol.

They're starting to hatch! :D I check on them several times a day, and today I noticed these tiny things crawling around the cup, one of the clusters hatched! I think there's about 6-10 tiny specks crawling around, still two other clusters that haven't hatched.

I've had bond snails before, and they didn't look like these.
Though, I'm not a snail expert, so I could be wrong.
Either way its still cool! :D

lol, bond snails. :D

I found out from the guy I got my plants from that Pond snails love to hitchhike on the plants and/or lay their eggs on them.
The snails he orders can't breed in freshwater... but the hitchhikers can.
So voila. xD

Speaking of getting eaten....I think Cici ate the mommy snail D: I can't tell if its dead, so I have it in a small cup with water. If it doesn't move by tonight I'll just assume its dead.
