5th, 6th, 7th and 9th photos showed newly laid eggs. Most of the others are 1-2 weeks old.
Those are all within a few days of each other, its just my crappy camera and the lights making them look older I guess, They turn white-ish as they get older?

My snails go through periods where they are dropping eggs like it is going out of style as well. I just keep scraping them off. I do no want a thousand eggs.
As it is, I must have missed a clutch because I had about 40 babies that grew up in my tank. I was able to rehome some of them but now... I don't allow anymore eggs to hatch.
I was planing on letting them hatch out but probably not all, I have a few tanks I can put them in. Or I could just sale/give them away. How long does it take them to reach adult size?
