So it turns out the nertie snail that lives with Alastor currently.. is a girl! Nerite snail females lay small white eggs frequently (more like 'constantly' according to some owners), even without a male to fertilize them, however they will not hatch in fresh water (even if the boy is around). I believe they need strong brackish or even sea water quality salinity to be born.. I'm not aware of anyone (regular hobbiest) successfully hatching nerite snails in a home aquarium. Wonder if Alastor will eat the free snail-caviar as a snack.. many of them are hidden in odd spots I didn't think the big snail could wedge itself in between the driftwood and glass, and a few are under the moss on the wood. I'll try to get some photos of them tomorrow but they're rather small and hard to get a good focus on.
