Snail help

A few months ago I got 5 mystery snails from Petsmart, and they haven't laid eggs above the water. I've seen egg like forms coming from them and floating to be he bottom but I figured it was waste. I just found a baby snail in my tank, breathing and moving.

I was wondering what snails lay eggs underwater? Or how I even have a baby snail fully developed.

Snail help

Looks more like a pond snail to me. I'm not an expert on breeding mystery snails though. If it's a pond snail keep it out of the tank they are a pest. No harm to the tank but will infest it.

Do the snails lay eggs under water though? And wouldn't I be able to just remove them when they're getting to be too much? This is the first baby that's been in the tank, and I also only have one black one in my tank like this one.

The black ones are the same snail.

Black and gold were bought about 2 months ago and my ivorys were about 4.

Those are all mystery. I stand by the baby being a pond snail though. They can hitchhike on almost anything.. Fish plants whatever.

But wouldn't it be larger if it came into my tank months ago?

I haven't done anything besides change the water in my tank for those two months, so I don't understand.
