i woke up this morning to find a clutch of eggs on the side of my filter and found this post and wanted to share a pic i got of them i don't mind them and was wondering should i just let them go? or should i try to move them to a safer place to hatch? anyway here is the first clutch i have found and i know there are going to be many many more cause my black mystery snail can't get enough lol:hmm3grin2orange: here is the pic i got

Yup, those would be eggs. If you lower ur water level some the snails will be less stressed and lay their eggs on the glass, easier to remove and farther from the light, the darker ones are duds. Congrats :)

i was thinking about that maybe i should get some clown loaches to mop up some of them and move the rest to the newt tank until to big to be eaten oh and i did lower the water level thank you for the tip i got a qustion thow what do you do with a gang of snails if ya don't want them all?
loaches or puffers hu? i did want to start a dwarf puffer tank maybe i can talk kittie into geting them now :hmm3grin2orange: with the free food and all :c1: thanks for the info and stuff

with a puffer i only have him the glass fish that turned canibal and ate my fish and one mean chinese algea eater. I am pretty sure puffers are an only species tank they are mean and slow lol. but i love him he has learned who i am and when i go to the tank he swims up and observes me as i am observing him lol. Also u could post them on craigs list, Kiji, or give em to your LFS. I am even sending some to someone right here from the good old A.C.:hmm3grin2orange:
