Crypts--you might have an initial period of melt, but that's just a matter of cleaning up the lost leaves and waiting for new growth. They respond well to just root tab ferts, don't require trimming...

Nerites will lay eggs whether they're fertilized or not; mixing types won't reduce egg laying behavior.

Ramshorn snail. Won't eat healthy plants, will eat dead plant material and algae. Leave it in if you like snails, take it out if you don't.

It's not really a question of whether they'll hatch, but how long they hang around as an eyesore. Which, in most tanks, slightly longer than forever. Easy enough to scrape off glass, but they're a...

Nope. Most of what folks have is actually bladder snails--but it's just easier to call 'em all ponds unless there's a specific need to break it down by actual type. :)
