Mystery Snail egg laying question

Recommended Posts

How long does it take for a female mystery snail to lay a clutch of eggs?  Like the actual egg laying process? I have a female that I think is ready to do so......she is crawling on the underside of the lid, and she never does that.  Was wondering if/when she starts to lay eggs, how long does it take to complete her clutch?

It depends on the size of the clutch. I’ve seen them dime size and inches long. On average mine take from 1-3 hours to complete the process. They go into an almost trance and nothing stops them. It is so fascinating to see the eggs slide down and be placed with such precision.
