Mystery Snail Eggs Out of NOWHERE!
So I was doing a water change just now on my 20g. I'll admit right now that it's one of those cheap kits you get from Wal-Mart with a plastic, flip-open hood. I noticed something different this time, though: a huge conglomeration of orangish-pinkish eggs on the inside of the hood. Who knew I had both a male and a female snail?
I guess I'm fine with the eggs hatching and all that because (brace yourself) my puffers are always hungry. So, is there anything special I need to do to make sure the eggs hatch safely? After they hatch, I plan on sticking in a vacation feeder to harvest the baby snails. How big are mystery snails when they hatch?
Also, I'm just curious here, where did all of those eggs come from? The total volume of eggs looks to be about twice the volume of either of my snails. Do they keep adding to the egg-heap over time and I've just been oblivious?
