Will Female Nerite Lay Eggs Without a Male Present?


Recommended Posts

Yes the female will lay eggs without a male present.  I have a single nerite and have eggs all over.  The larvae will not hatch, or if they do, will not survive unless in brackish water though (so says the internet).  I recently tried scraping the eggs off of some driftwood, and while the actual eggs popped off pretty easily, it still left behind some marks that were difficult to remove.
