Snails Breeding?

Has anyone had all of their snails release a milky fluid into the water? I was watching two of my snails do this tonight. They made the whole tank cloud up!

These are the large variety of snails often called margarita snails.

Are they attempting to breed?

No they arent breeding, they are defacating. Unless the white milky fluid is actually a sac with eggs dropping into it. But that wont cloud the water.
