Default trumpet snail question

I've been planning out a 33g tank for a while and have went with eco-complete on the bottom and play sand on the top I really want to avoid raking the sand to keep gasses under control so in a tank which i've been farming mystery snails i've been looking for the elusive trumpet snail, finally i have one are these guys all substrate dwellers and what about multiplying are they a sexual or do i need to find him some freinds?or is their a better choice of turning my substrate thx in advance

They reproduce sexually and are live bearers. MTS are the best for turning over and aerating the gravel/sand. They will also eat left over food and plant debris.

They will take time to breed, but DEFINATELY will breed.
Snails also make for an interesting part of a community tank,
as well as being beneficial.
Enjoy

If you found one, more than likely he already has some friends in there. Just give it time.

MTS are parthenogenic females, males have not been found.

Glad to hear that. They can breed fast, interesting creatures. Not even clown loach can make them history.

p/s: Now sure if you put more loaches ...i have only one
