I don't have decorations except plants, gravel, and a wood airstone. This problem has been here before the airstone though but I have noticed that I hadn't had this problem until I put co2 in the tank

Noticed that you use a 'yeast' based CO2 system. Have you recently switch yeast strains in your DIY system?

Have you seen a spike in your TDS or Hardness?

Sounds like your yeast may be the problem.

Using yeast for a CO2 system adds a whole new element to water parameters.

PM me, we might be able to work this out.

It's only malyasian trumpet snails who don't lay eggs. I did however put in some pieces of limestone in the filter... To aid with the pH

And it couldn't be yeast because how did it get in the filter?
