My trio is soon going to become a herd. In case anyone is wondering it takes, at maximum, a month for ramshorns snails to go from teeny, tiny, babies to adults capable of reproducing.

When I did a water change today to get rid of white floating strings I spotted 3 clutches of eggs stuck to the side of the aquarium which were not there when I did a water change yesterday, and another clutch stuck to one of the anacharis. I got rid of 2 of the clutches on the side of the glass and left the other two.

Now I'm wondering how long it'll take the eggs to hatch?

It doesn't take too long for them to hatch. I haven't had ramshorn snails in maybe 3 or 4 years so I don't remember how long it was before they hatched but don't think it took too long either. Since I got assassin snails I haven't had ramshorn. Been over 2 years since I last saw them and had my assassin snails. Yes they are surviving this long without any pest snails. Mind sending some my way? lol.

Diane, if you really want some ramshorns, I can send you some of mine. I also got hitchhikers on some plants in my 20 gallon, and the population recently exploded. The tank doesn't have any algae, but they've started on my plants because they're still hungry:( I've been pulling them out and putting them in a five gallon bucket with water I siphoned during a water change, and I kind of don't know what to do with them.
