My free swimmers made it to Mom and Dad's slime coats and once I saw that I ran to get the camera. I came back and they were all gone. A very sad day for me. I would have loved to have got those little fry on film.
I like Redchigh's idea. If you put some Almond Leaves in the tank they will become waterlogged and rest on the bottom. Snails can't resist these leaves. Just a thought...
I don't have to worry about snails, I have loaches. The loaches don't go near the eggs but I'm sure all it takes is one fry to lose its grip on Mom or Dad and in sweeps the loach snout.
If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
