Trochus snails keep breeding.

I’ve got two banded trochus snails that keep spawning leaving me with a 15 g tank full of snails. What encourages this to happen? Temperature flux? Chemistry? It’s driving me mad.

I'm going to guess food would be the top reason, followed by lack of predation. So many reef keepers would be thrilled to have that "problem" that listing your tank conditions/inhabitants might help provide a template. How cool!
It was cool until I realized I had no choice but make a dirty tank to provide enough algae! They start off too small to give them away. They grow really fast and they are now a size about a pinky nail. I guess I have to get rid of one which bums me out.
