I have seven apple snails throughout my tanks, and have found out only one is female! How often can she mate and produce eggs? So far she laid a clutch on the second and I found another one today. Can she keep doing this or will it hurt her? Should I seperate?
Also, how fast do young grow? Is it the temperature?
How do you help your snail go dormant, in the mud? I've read lack of this I'd what causes aple snails to not last very long in the aquarium.
How long does it take trot the clutch to hatch? I'd like to be ready! What factors are involved?
Any advice/experience is welcome!

I don't know much but they can store sperm so expect more eggs. they only lay when it is safe and they have the right amount of space. 2" above the water line is best but when they have to lay they will.


Hatching require humidity. They will pop out them selves and you can help after you see babies.

So far it took 1 month for mine to be as big as "O"


applesnails.net has more info.
