Wondering about Ramshorns and Trumpet snails...interbreeding?

So, I had some Ramshorns in a tadpole tank I have, and I moved a few of them to a smaller bowl, to breed, and while at Petsmart, I was given a few trumpet snails, For FREE!, and I was wondering, do they interbreed?
I know that theyll breed quickly, but i put them all together in a .5g tank, and i was wondering if ill end up with funky looking snails?

I've had tons of both kind in my 10 gallon for a while, and before that they were in a 50 gallon. I only have trumpet babies and ramshorn babies. Mine have never interbred.

Hmm...maybe i should QT a trumpet and a ramshorn, to see if they have eggs, then if im sure there are no more eggs, put them together and see if theres babies?

Also, my ramshorns seem to be carrying thier eggs on thier backs? its been two weeks and im not seeing any babies...

Just a warning, the trumpets can reproduce on their own, they don't need a pair. I think the ramshorns need a pair, but they contain both sets of reproductive organs, so you don't need a male and a female, just 2 snails. :)

Trumpets are asexual?! I know Ramshorns arent, but they are hermaphrodites...So i guess my experement wont work..=[ I was hoping to see if i get any interesting shapes!

So, how long does it usually take for each species to breed/ or for babies to start showing up? There are plenty of eggs, they just dont seem to get any different than gobs of clear goo.

Are they exclusively asexual? Cause two of my trumpets are on top of each other, like my ramshorns do...are they mating? or just hitching a ride?
