Trumpet snails (MTS) are livebearers so you will not see any eggs from them just lots of little snails.

No kidding :shock: well then what else do I have in there :-? case the pond snails eggs are this clear coat and white eggs - I got something going here right now that's more brownish eggs coated in this clear film? Any ideas?

Not sure about snails but for fish ,, white eggs are those that have fungused and are not viable, while brownish eggs are fertilized eggs that have not fungused. Got any cory's? they often lay eggs on anything handy.

No Cory eggs in that tank; they're confined to the 55&45g only :-) Its def not fungus; it sorta looks a lot like shrimp eggs just white and the others are brown.

I'll just wait & see what will develop :-)

I think they start out looking whitish and get more color as the snails inside grow.
