They breed, so now there are babies everywhere, and two more egg clumps that still need to hatch

I would suggest destroying the other egg sacks. If you allow all of them to hatch you will have hundreds of babies. The recommended density of mystery snails are 1 per 5 gallons of water. Some say one per 10 gallons. They produce a lot of waste and can quickly throw water conditions off. If you decide to hatch them then you need to start finding homes or buy a lot of tanks to keep them. It is best to ship them before they get past quarter size. Larger ones do not ship as well as babies. At applesnail.net they have a lot of advice on caring for hatchlings. Good place to get lots of advice.

I'll let nature take its course, I'm planning on selling most of them, only keeping like 4. I also have bigger fish in the tank so they might eat them

I'm guessing they turned out to be mystery snails instead of the giant apples?

If it's maculata/giant apple snail the eggs will be greenish. If it's diffusa/mystery snail the eggs are more pink.

They're apple snails, I keep canas and mine don't look like that.
Good luck with the babies! I'm thinking of breeding canas soon so I'm following your thread!
