Snail Eggs!!! Now what?????
Ok so i was looking at my tank today. I was examining the little white specs on the glass [which i think now are algae or SOMETHING i still really dont know what it is] and i was looking around, and guess what i found?! A sticky goupy glob of what looks like snail eggs. I tried to take a pic but my camera sucks and i cant get a good pic. its like this glob of goop with little specs in it. they look like eggs with white dots. what should i do? D:

Are they snail eggs or fish eggs? how big are they?

I see pond snail eggs on my tank walls all the time, but most of the time the eggs get eaten or I just never happen to see the babies. Yet my snail population stays stable so obviously some survive. Good luck finding out what they are.

im 99.7% sure they are snail eggs.
my guppies are live bearers and dojo loaches are nearly impossible to breed in an aquarium
other than guppies and dojo loaches i have nothing else in the tank

If you dont want a bunch of snails then i would take them out. But if they could be fish egg i would leave them. Up you tho.

well there are three spots where the eggs are
would it really hurt the tank to let them hatch and let them grow a bit n maybe give em to my LFS or something?

Snails can reproduce without mating so you are asking for trouble leaving snail eggs unless you want snails.

Yep, they sound like snail eggs.
I have a tank full of ramshorn snails. When I get to many, I offer them at shipping cost. That is one option. There are some people that need them for puffer food or just want some snails in their tanks.

so it wouldnt hurt my bioload or anything to keep em n raid em up a bit?
then i could offer them in the classified section of this forum right?
how would one ship them?
