IME if you don't overfeed, they won't overpopulate. I've had pond snails run me over anyway, but ramshorns seem to be much more reasonable with their reproduction.

Yeah at first I was like "why arnt there any eggs..." but then D:
Lol yeah I think I'll keep them and sell them to the pet store or something for like, 5c lol
Theyre just normal red ones but I know one of my adult ramshorns had this really cool pattern on him do you think atleast 1 or 2 will have them?

oh thats awesome! I cant wait to see pics!

from what I have read (someone correct me if I am wrong) the ramshorn can asexually reproduce...and when they do the babies are clones of the parents...so I'd say your chances are pretty good that the babies will look like the adults

The babies should look similar to the adult, yes. To get technical, they aren't asexual but they are hermaphroditic.

What did they say...? "Oh it's ok, they're both freshwater"
