So when we first bought the snails, of course, they were all jumbled up in the bag on top of one another. Figured I'd put them in the tank & they would...well...disassemble. Well...some of them did and others didnt. Two weeks later they still continue to ride eachother around. Figured it was a little odd (because it wasn't just two, it was everyone pairing up), but you know, whatever. So tonight...they are not just on top of eachother...but they are...well...polinating (to keep it friendly)? And it wasn't just one pair...sometimes another would come over and join in.
Well...this has now been going on for three hours. Any ideas about when it will stop? What conditions are right for snails mating? Not that I'm expecting anything to come of this (although the last time I had something mate in a fish tank I ended up with about 250 texas cichlids in a 55gal. That all lived...and grew...and prospered...all from the first 'attempt'), but what should I expect? And finally...any effect on water quality?
And of course, for those of you interested...I will be posting pictures after Greys Anatomy
