Mine laid eggs about once a week or so, and she still lays them after a year, even though they aren't fertilized. She does go about 2-3 months in between her egg laying episodes.

OH well great then! I really thought all snails would lay eggs inside of the water, so yesterday morning i couldnt find her i pulled open the lid and there she was laying eggs in the hood i should have known better to know that she knew what she was doing but instead I put her and the babies back in the tank.I thought she was going to die. Oh yea and believe me i know now that i accidently murdered them! it really was sad.From now on i will let her do her own thing, she and the other one was mating again last night so hopefully will have new babies soon. Thanx for all your help!

Mystery snails will lay atleast 4 clutches of eggs.It will be a least 3-4 weeks before the eggs hatch.Even though there might be 400 egs only about 30-70 will hatch if you have the setup right.Be sure not to put a puffer,and loches in the tank if you do the snails will gat eaten.

Get cuttle bone, like the stuff for birds, and burry it in your gravel. ( I would suggest washing the gravel first.)
