View Full Version : Mystery snail egss?

11-17-2007, 05:08 PM
normally I only open 1 side of the tank to feed my angle fish. well today I opened the other side and I found this on the lid. Its huge!! about one inch in length and half inch tall or deep. it looks like tiny eggs so I am guess its the mystery snail eggs.
I really don't want that many snails at all should I get rid of it? will the angel fish eat it if I knock it off into the tank or will they eat them when they hatch. and is that ok if they do eat them?
sorry for the crappy pics but its all I got.
thanks for any advice

Snail eggs, yes. I would think the angels would eat the eggs if you put them where they can be reached. Perfectly safe.

what about if the eggs hatch. can the angels eat the baby snails?
thanks for the extremely fast response!!!

Not sure about the angels eating the baby snails. I don't think so, but some of our Angel keepers will be more helpful with that question.

Young Mystery snails are very tiny and the shell is soft. It wont be a problem for the Angels to eat them.
