snails and eggs

My GBR's spawn regularly and I understand that they tend to eat their eggs. I wonder though if snails eat them also. I don't know what they're called but they look like a unicorn horn. There a some ramshorn and olive nerites in there too. Just wondering, thanks.

Go Steelers!

Nerites will ignore the eggs. Your other snails will love you for free caviar.
