Anyway, if you'd like to setup a baby snails tank, then simply take water from your original aquarium and use it in the baby tank. Don't move the baby snails immediately after they hatch, because at this time they're very sensitive to changes in their environment (water); Instead, wait a week or two before moving them to a baby tank. No need to worry about snails, they'll take care of themselves. Just keep feeding them and focus on water quality.

Breeding mystery snails is relatively a hands-off process. If you have two or more in an aquarium and they are kept in clean water and fed well, they will eventually attempt to breed. The key is to lower the water level of the tank 3 to 5 inches so that they can move out to lay their egg sac. Once laid, you’ll notice a small sac of eggs, light pink in color that sticks to the aquarium glass or rim of the aquarium. On average, it will take two to three weeks for the baby snails to emerge from their eggs, and they will fall into the water and start moving around.

If you keep Pomacea bridgesii or Pomacea canaliculata Apple Snails you may find yourself in the predicament of discovering a lovely grape-like egg cluster deposited on the side of your tank or maybe even up on the cover of your aquarium. Do not panic! Read these simple instructions and you will be well on your way to raising up your own baby Apple Snails. These instructions are NOT intended for rearing Marisa Cornurietis (Giant Colombian Ramshorn) snails as they lay aquatic eggs.If all goes well, you will see small transparent “blobs” with tiny specks inside appear all over your container. Congratulations, these are snail eggs that should soon hatch into tiny baby snails! Once you have established a stable breeding population, you can start feeding snails to your snail-eating aquarium inhabitant(s). To easily remove a few snails, just drop a piece of food into the container, wait until the snails crawl onto it to feed and then lift the food and snails out of the water. Your snail eating fish will be grateful.Many young snails might die within the first weeks of their existence, but those who survive grow quickly. At a size of 2.5 cm /1 inch (2-5 months) in case of and , they are able to reproduce and the next generation will appear if you don't remove their eggs in time.
From the day they hatch, the young snails eat the same as their parents, so there is no need for special babysnail-food. Keep in mind, however, that it's often difficult for a young snail to obtain enough food in a completely clean tank. The long distances they need to walk in such case to reach the food could simply be too much. As a result of this, it's often easier to raise little apple snails in a tank with algae on the walls so the little snails have enough food (algae) without traveling all around.
The young apple snails can stay in the same aquarium together with their parents without being eaten by them as long as there is enough food available. However, larger fish with preference for (little) snails can be a reason to keep the young ones in a separated aquarium until they have grown somewhat bigger.
If one plans to transfer the little snail to a separate tank, be sure that their new environment is already a somewhat stable eco-system. In other words: put 1/3 water from a pond or another aquarium with 2/3 fresh water and let the new tank stand for 2-3 weeks with vegetation, without other inhabitants before adding little snails. Such approach certainly increases the success rate with raising young snails.
And last, but not least: algae and debris might not be appealing to the human eye, however it's certainly appreciated by the little snails. Keep baby mystery snails in an aquarium with the parents. Large fish may eat baby snails, so keep fish in a separate tank. If a new aquarium is used, prepare it with plants two to three weeks before adding the baby mystery snails.
