Did you put live plants in it? Sometimes they latch onto the plants. :)

I vote this.

That's really weird. Were the fish in it bagged? o-o I don't know anything that had store aquarium water could hold snail eggs. Maybe even a fish, as unlikely as that sounds, doesn't seem to be much explanation :D

I want pics. This is the fastest case of evolution (from water bacteria to snails overnight) EVER. That... or I'm going to have to admit defeat and believe in The Snork.

My mum's never had live plants in her 10gal tank and she had an invasion of snails once. Luckily something in there ate them all! Never did work out where they'd come from. Perhaps floating eggs in the fish bag/cup water?

Yep. I added a pygmy Cory (they only had one), to my tank and had 2 snails a few days later o.o they latch onto fish somehow.
