In general, this is a typical thing to see when MS are attracted to each other. Sometimes some snails do not seem to be interested in each other and other times this is their primary interest.

You might already have eggs in hiding. The babies in the eggs breath air until they are ready to be hatched and their gill system are developed. So make sure the eggs do not go into the water. They will hatch and you will see LOTS of tiny babies heading into the water!!! So, SO adorable.

Look for the reproduction link

Thanks for all the feedback! Im Sure this question has been asked a hundred times already…Yes I’ve looked up what the eggs look like , and I’m definitely keeping my eyes peeled for them! I’m really trying to figure out how to sex them so I know for sure.
