Olive nerite snails

i got olive nerite snails laying eggs all over my BW tanks.
i heard about how the eggs will only hatch in BW. since my tank a BW at 1.005. i was wondering if thats will hatch the eggs.

how long will it take b4 the eggs hatch?
and is there any special care for the babys?

from what i have gathered they hatch into a larval stage. they need small organisms to feed on like green water. it is possible to breed them at home it just takes a lot of work. the main reason i keep nerties is they dont breed in fw lol thats a plus for many people.

Never tried breeding them, but it sounds like a brackish water - greenwater tank with lots of infusoria etc. would be the way to try to breed them. I'm tempted to try it one of these days--it's on my list of projects to do "some day."

I wasn't trying to breed them, they just happen to breed. I just wanted a cleaning crew in my bw n the only one u can find was snails. I happen to found out that RAM snails can do pretty well in bw at a 1.008. I have a couple of ram snails growing in there also.

How do u make green water?

a bucket out side with water and some ammonia in there. finding a local start culture helps a lot.
