snails

i bought 2 mystery snails for my aquerium aprox 2 months ago,, they did mate, but about a week after i found 4 tiny baby snails in my tank!
when i posted about it, someone said they probably were not mystery snail babies,, but pond snails!
well now last night,, i have seen many more tiny snails!! the 1st wave of baby snails have gotten bigger,, now these new tiny ones have appeared!
does anyone know what is going on??
i love the little snails,, but i forsee an explosion!
also my baby black mollys are getting bigger and i think my female black molly is pregnant again?
i bought another 20 gallon tank but it's not set up yet!
help!!!

Need pics of the snails to be sure of which type they might be.

Pictures are hard to see but looks like pond snails. I would pick them out or they will probably keep reproducing. Unless you have room for a few yo yo loaches.

These look like pond snails. If they were from your mystery snails you would have seen the eggs on the side of your tank.

Yes all fish will eat them. It's swimming food basically. If you can't regime them nor buy a bigger tank let the fish eat them. It's nature and happens all the time and you will have more in a month or so
