    Default Nerite snails laid eggs

    Hi guys, long time no speak:)

    Anyways, I come to you today with a question about snail eggs. I am pretty sure they are snail eggs, they just look like little sesame seeds spread around the back of the tank. I actually scraped alot of them off thinking it was sand clumped up on the back(I was re-arranging rockscsape in the peacock breeding colony). I was a bit unsure that they were snail eggs at first, given that they were spread out a fair bit across the back glass of the tank.

    So the question is what are the chances of these snails hatching in a steady 8.3 pH with proper weekly maintenance and such? Substrate is cichlid buffer assisted by a reef buffer(8.3) with each water change. Heater 250 watts. Filtration is fluval c4 and AC70. 1 small powerhead for circulation towards the bottom of the tank. There are only 2 nerites currently in the 55 gallon tank along with 2 male peacocks(1 extremely dominant, other male might as well be a female) and 6 or 7 females.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    Exactly 0%. They need brackish [But that doesn't keep the eggs from coming].
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
