Depending on your tank size...you may want to squish any eggs you find during water change to keep population down...Pond snails can overpopulate a smaller tank pretty quickly...I always have a few pond snails in my tanks and i like them.. but I make sure to squish any eggs I find during water changes to keep the population down.

^^ Yessss! I have mine in a tropical community tank, not with Bettas. I have population control where a Betta tank doesn't!

Aura, really? I don't think my MTS have bred yet and I'm pretty sure I got them from the same place as you. Unless I have a whole tribe of 'em under the substrate that I don't know about.

As a side note, nerites can't breed in freshwater so you will most likely never see baby nerites unless you actually buy them.

Early this morning I looked at the tank and I saw baby MTS, several adults as well so I'm assuming they are doing well. I think we got the MTS at the same time.

I've got hundreds and hundreds. I hope they don't eat all the algae before my otos.

If my MTS are breeding, they're hiding it well.
