They are livebearing snails, and don't require male/female pairs.  I 
can't remember if they are just asexual or hermaphroditic (sp). You will 
soon have more than you know what to do with.  Also I have heard that 
clown loaches can't eat them very well, because their shells are so hard 
and they can close up in their shell.  But I believe Chuck Gadd has 
clown loaches and MTS.  Maybe he can tell us for sure.
