 Hi  ppl  of  the  forum.
 
 some  of  my  apple  snails  seem  have  been  breeding  away  in  the  bushes  and  i  noticed  that  they  laid  their  eggs  on  one  of  the  dry  space  on  the  top  of  the  tank  wall  just  above  the  water  level.
 
 they  seem  to  be  plenty  of  eggs,  kinda  looks  like  a  cacoon.  a  few  days  later,  another  snail  stuck  its  eggs  right  beside  the  older  ones.
 
 how  long  would  it  take  for  these  babies  to  hatch  and  what  am  i  supposed  to  do  to  take  care  of  them  once  they  are  hatched?  they  belong  in  a  community  tank  with  various  different  fish.  will  they  be  eaten  or  should  i  pluck  them  out  and  put  them  in  another  tank?
 
 thanx  in  advance

 If  its  in  a  community  tank  the  first  thing  i  would  do  is  to  get  rid  of  them.Once  the  eggs  hatch  they  will  populate  the  whole  tank  and  its  tougher  to  get  rid  of  them  once  that  happens  and  since  you  say  you  want  the  babies,its  not  going  to  be  easy  to  collect  them  either  once  they  hatch
 .
 You  can  transfer  the  cluster  of  eggs  as  long  as  you  dont  damage  them.Probably  the  best  way  of  trying  this  out  is  making  the  eggs  wet  and  waiting  for  a  while.Then  again  this  may  damage  the  eggs  if  you  are  not  careful.The  new  location  you  transfer  it  to,should  be  moist  but  not  wet.Higher  the  temperature  you  maintain,faster  do  they  hatch.I  did  try  this  out  once  and  it  worked  fine.

 Hi  Shaj...  dont  forget  that  even  i'm  counting  your  chickens  (or  snails)  before  they've  hatched.  Thumb Up  ..    better  be  careful  whatever  u  do  to  them  boy...  All  the  best..  Cheer

 hey  vinay
 
 does  it  make  a  difference  if  the  tank  gets  populated  with  apple  snails?  or  will  be  under  danger  from  the  fish  and  other  snails?
 
 i  mean  is  it  really  worth  taking  a  risk  transferring  them  than  having  them  rear  in  the  tank  itself  rather?
 
 Shaji
 
 PS:  yes  vikram,  u  get  as  many  as  u  want  free

 It  should  not  be  a  problem  as  long  as  you  do  not  have  loach  or  puffer  fish  in  the  tank.Some  snails  may  also  eat  plants.

 Hi,
 Once  these  snails  start  to  breed  they  sure  breed  like  hell.
 For  past  10  days  I  am  removing  one  cup  full  of  baby  snails  from  my  livebearer  tank  daily.
   Very Happy
