I have no idea, I just left the first one I found, and made sure it was taken out every water change. I have him in my 29g now, he reproduces but my fish eat the babies. I have a ramshorn snail in Nixons tank, it's been there for ages. Just him, no others :)

That's pretty hilarious!! :) aww :D I want a baby snail. Um, so, my grandfather had a fish tank once, and he bought a couple snails, and I guess he didn't think they'd reproduce, which they did....... and when he'd see baby snails all over the sides of the tank, he'd stick his arm in there and squish them!!!!!!!!!! D: lmao, anyway...............

Do you have live plants in your tank? If so, the snail probably made its way in on them.

I have plants but i've had them for a few months before I saw babies. So unless they take awhile to hatch... also there are like, snail eggs on some of the decorations and the heater so I think maybe my nerite isnt really a nerite? O.o lol.
