Unless there's only one....but the OP said snail(S)....

HEY!!!

What about Tylo snails? They breed but VERY slowly. The babies would actually be worth something to fellow hobbyists, and they're neat to watch.

Rabbit snails lay single eggs, I'm not sure if they're adhesive. They have a fairly long gestation period, so there will not be any explosion in population.
Personally I'd love some to compliment my MTS, they come in such a wide variety of shell types and flesh patterns/tones.

Edit: I think that tylo is another name for rabbit snails.
