Those are not from a pest snail, they would be Cerith snail eggs. Very nice. Ceriths are very beneficial.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I love the pattern of the way your snail laid the eggs. How soon before they hatch? I also really like the clove polyps. I've never seen anything like those before. Very interesting color and texture on those. Sort of like cotton candy!

im not 100% sure the eggs will hatch or if they will make it to adult hood. i could be very wrong about this as i know there are some snails that will and others that wont. right now i dont know if this is one that will or not. i have to look more into it.
regardless i like the stomatalla snails and they will reproduce in home aquariums. i have like a million of them but the good thing is during the day you only see like 5 so its not like im over run, plus they are only cleaning so its good stuff. they look pretty cool too, soft shelled snails.. kinda like slugs.
