smoking snails

i'm sitting here watching my turbo snails let out this white smoke. i assume from all the baby snails i have that this is some kind of "sex thing". every night 3/4 of them go to the highest point in the tank and start smoking. the chromis feast on the caviar and the water gets so cloudy. it got me thinking, what happens between the time i see the smoke and when i see the babies? i don't see any nests or anything like that.
