    Super Tongan Nassarius Snail

    So I noticed one of my snails moving around alot more yesterday before work. I just noticed that it's been on my glass cleaner still and there it's covered in eggs. How many eggs do these guys lay and how well do they do growing out? I have no fish in the nano atm.

    I think I have baby peppermint shrimp as well. I see them in the water column at night here and there. I hope those survive too.

    Sweet. The shrimp you see are probably mysids, because they seem to reproduce a lot easier than peppermints. If they are fast and do loops occasionally, that would be an indicator they are mysids. If they are peppermints, then you are da man!
    Don't look here for a comment.

    Sweet mother of snail eggs that's a TON! Yea you definitly should see smaller ones in there, if the tanks got good microalgae. Exciting stuff man!

    So last night I did a lot of googling....there are varied results. Some say maybe 10 will survive others say they all will. Found out the reason the eggs were layed there instead of on the rocks as well....Perfect water flow. It should be about a week before I see any type of movement. So for now i'm not messing with the location of my glass cleaner and just scrape the front and left side with an old CC. I should have plenty of microalgae as my Kenya is doing great and growing at a fast pace.But will definitely keep everyone posted with pics here and there.
