Snails mate. And it looks a lot like wrestling.

Ramshorn? Must have been a hitch hiker. Grats Z!!
No eggs yet and I have 5 now. There is all sorts of mating going on all the time but no one lays a clutch.

Don't congrats me I didn't want any more snails so I may or may not have added some goldfish temporarily to the tank.... Not a snail in sight now.

Well, except for the single mail mystery I left, gave away the other 2 females. Nerites are a better pick for next time I think.

Did water changes today only to discover two baby ramshorn snails mating inside my fake clam in my 30 gallon. Mystery snails mated all day still no eggs.

I have 6 mystery snails now in their own 10 gallon tank. Three I have had for months. I know I have males and females large and small. They eat and mate, eat and mate. I have the water level down 4 in at least.

Water is 80F, 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite nitrate <20, Ph 8.4. The females do go up to the water line sometimes but no egg clutches. They love my hard water the shells are in excellent shape.

There are no fish to bother them, just one very aggressive male snail. He's like a stalker on steroids won't leave the girls alone to um breathe. Any insight as to why no one lays eggs? Thanks
