I have a tank that was dry for quite some time, then when the Jack Dempseys had a brood we started the aquarium up and placed the baby Jack dempseys in it. A couple weeks later my wife noticed a snail in the tank. we have not seen any snails in the tank that they came from. Now there are dozzens of snails and we don't know what to do with them. I thought about feeding them to the parents but am a little reluctant since I don't know where they came from or how they got there.
Does any one know if snails or their eggs can survive being dried out for extended periods.

It was dry.
It is a 10 gallon.
They are pretty small I don't think I can get any useful pictures. They are small brown snails that never leave the water so I am assuming they are aquatic.
