Breeding Mystery Snails - UPDATE - Looks like hatching

My 28 gallon is basically a breeding tank for trumpets and those little pond snails (food for puffer and loaches). I thought about getting some mystery snails for food (and some to just have/give away), but they are way to expensive for that. I know they need to have room above the water to lay their eggs, but that is about it. Any other info would be appreciated. Water conditions? How fast do they breed? How many usually survive from the clutch? etc?

I just noticed that I have some tiny whitish snails all over my tank. Not pond, MTS, or ramhorn, so I guess the first batch have hatched and are growing. Think I have/had a total of 6 or 7 clutches laid. Can't wait to see if any others are different colors.
