    So apparently even removing the male snail when I did wasn't fast enough...

    So NOW I have 4 clutches hanging in my main tank...

    I want to throw the clutches all in a 3.5g tank... its not cycled and just trying to find out if that's alright? Can I also fully submerge the clutch as well ....

    HHHHEEEELLLPPPPP SHOW ME THE WAY.... I wasn't going to mind 1 clutch... but no way with 4

    If you don't want them all, feed what you don't want to your fish. I'm not sure about putting them in an uncycled tank - don't know enough about snails. If you submerge the clutch, I'm pretty sure it will kill them.

      I was thinking they were only laid above water so fish didn't eat them... guessing no fish no problem.... my friends tank the clutch never made it above water and WHAM she has 100's in her 55g its practically unbearable...

        You probably don't want to hatch all of them I got over 200 snails from 2 clutches

        Baby snails aren't as hardy as adult snails so an uncycled tank could kill them.

        You could get a breeder box and float it in your big tank and use some styrofoam to use as a raft for the clutches a little tip don't get a breeder box with vents in the bottom I made that mistake and they all fell through into the tank doh.

        You could put some extra media in your established filter and by the time the clutches hatch your media could well be seeded for an instant cycle

          I think I'll give that a shot... so being fully submersed is alright?

            Simply remove the clutches and throw them in the trash. If you don't want the babies, that's the only way to deal with population control. Loaches can help by eating the extras too. I often drop snails in my Clown Loach tank. They really perk up when there is live foods.

              Only if you want to kill them. You have to float them on something if you put them in a breeder box.

                Styrofoam should work well as a raft to float them on
