Mystery Snail Eggs Mystery: What To Do?

Hi there! I'm kinda new here so getting the site figured out will take a little for me.
Okay, so recently, last night (and most likely again soon), one of my mystery snails laid a clutch of eggs. These eggs are most likely fertilized, as currently the snails are clinging to each other. This can be a problem for me because I have very little space for any other fish in the two tanks I currently have running. I was thinking of starting up either my 30 or 55 gallon tanks as a means of making space and for getting snail-eating fish, but the 30 is going to be for a ryukin.
I think it would be cool to have them hatch, but I also think that the possibility of over 100 snails is not very good for me. I could possibly put one or two snails in my adult platy 10 gallon currently housing 2 platys, and I could also set up my 55g with the rainbowfish and other assortment I recently looked into and put some in there to feed or to let grow. But a new setup would take time and money, as I don't have a canopy for the 55 or a stand for the 30.
I don't know if I should keep them, toss them, feed them, or find someone to take them. So can anyone suggest anything I should do with the clutch and/or possibly the snails that come from them?
Any experiences or tips or advice is appreciated!

You can actually ship them anywhere via usps for $5.50. I'm sure someone would take them. Heck, I'll take them. On the other hand, you could get a crayfish and put it in a 10gal. Crayfish love snails, for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
