Do Nassarius or Turbos reproduce in captivity?

Just saw the smallest snail in my tank the other day. Yesterday, saw another, but not sure if it was the same one.

How likely is it that either of my snails (have 6 turbos and 10 or so nassarius) had babies? I don't think I have any snail munchers, so maybe they did multiply and are living?

Its likly. I have a ton of little snails in my 75. They hide when the lights come on. But if you turn the lights on a few hours early you can see them all over. They are small but look like turbos when you look at their shell shape.
