    i've got the same type of snail. Got him from a rock pool. White eggs are all over my tank. Had them (the eggs) for a couple of months now. I'm suspecting one of my snails but all my snails have eggs on their shells :whistling:.
    Still to see an increase in snail population. Have noticed numerous tiny limpids.

    Here's an old pic of mine. Can see some eggs on my turbos. I've taken a close look at some of the eggs on the front glass pane.
    I call them eggs could they have what seems the be a yolk sack.

    The skin/shell is leathery and smooth (not to confuse them with fan worms) and deform slightly to pressure. What i'd imagine the shell of a turtles' eggs would be like.
