Anyone interested in baby apple snails?

My new apple snails laid eggs, I am trying to decide if I should remove them or let them hatch. I have read a single egg cluster can produce 100 baby snails, and of course no way I have room for that many. If anyone wants some, let me know, otherwise I am going to remove the eggs in the next couple of days. I have yellow and purple snails and I don't know which one laid the eggs.

Soon as I get moved I would love a couple. BTW that many most likely wont survive if you keep them in the tank with fish. But you should get enough to share.

At the moment they are in QT - the adults just got here on FRIDAY and already laid eggs. I have them in a seperate 30 gallon tank for quarantine. I bought 8 large adult snails planning to put one or two in each of my tanks, but the people I bought them from sent me some young snails too, I have about a dozen of those, and now eggs. I am afraid I will have apple snails coming out my ears shortly.

Ok so I know I don't want to let more than one clutch hatch out then. I will be happy to share babies though! I'll let you know how things progress.

I got a couple of white baby snails too in addition to the yellow and purple.

One clutch will still produce about 100 snails. I would break a small piece of the clutch off so you might end up with about 25 eggs, that should yield you at least 10-15 snails. :)

I will try that. I just did a water change and found another cluster of eggs. One set is pinkish and the other is white because now I have to decide which set to keep. Any idea what that is? I will break off some of the clutch I keep so it pars the numbers down some.
