Do turbo snails reproduce in tank?

Just wondering if anyone has had Turbo Snails reproduce in their tank?

Also how do i introduce more algae into the system for them to eat? It seems they are spending more time resting than eating or moving.. think they cleaned everything up already

In my experience they are much more active at night. If they are resting day and night then my guess would actually be that they are dying. I have had them eat at night from a veggie clip (nori) but often they scavenge well all sorts of things in the tank. There are tales of them spawning in aquaria but it is more often than not the larvae get skimmed or otherwise eaten by reef inhabitants.

My turbo snails are always reproducing in the tank. I always find new tiny little turbos on the glass or LR. Some has actually grown to about 4mm in diameter.
