 Snails  are  hermaphrodite  so  no  need  for  sexing  them.  i.e.  each  snail  has  both  male  and  female  sex  organs.  But  they  need  another  snail  to  breed.  So  any  two  snails  of  the  same  breed,  picked  randomly,  will  form  a  pair.
 
 I  had  apple  snails  8  years  ago.  When  they  lay  eggs  they  come  out  of  water.  They  laid  eggs  on  the  inner  side  of  my  aquarium's  top  cover.  This  i  assume  makes  the  eggs  safe  from  aquatic  predators.  The  eggs  have  a  hard  calcium  shell,  just  like  chicken  egg  (not  so  hard  though),are  white,  and  form  a  very  compact  cluster.The  babies  hatch  and  drop  into  the  water;  gravity  does  it  all.  (after  how  many  days  do  they  hatch?  I  don't  know...  did  not  notice)
 
 I  don't  know  what  makes  them  breed.  But  when  they  bred,  they  were  in  a  goldfish  only  aquarium  and  had  plenty  to  eat,  which  used  to  be  very  dirty.  Also  the  snails  were  of  fairly  large  size  (I  guess  the  max  size  an  apple  snail  could  grow  up  to)  The  season  was  summers  or  rainy  and  the  tank  temperature  used  to  be  around  30.  That  is  all  i  can  remember.  Of  the  hundreds  of  eggs  that  they  laid  only  2  babies  survived.  Rest  were  eaten  by  goldfishes  i  guess.

 once  the  apple  snails  start  breedin  u  will  want  ways  to  stop  them  from  breedin,   ROFL  
 they  breed  like  mad,
 set  em  up  in  a  small  tank,  add  food  daily  like  boiled  lettuce  or  cabbage  leaves  daily  and  give  them  a  50%  w/c  daily,
 this  should  be  sufficient,  but  i  hope  the  apple  snails  u  wanna  breed  r  mature  enuf  to  breed

 Too  old  a  topic,  but  anyway..  Not  all  apple  snails  will  breed.  Not  all  apple  snail  species  are  hermaphrodites.  They  need  pairing.  I  have  3  and  waiting  on  them  to  breed  just  like  you  are.  Let's  hope!
