Hey guys

There are little egg sacks on my tank glass.
They look like little gelly sacks with 4-5 little white eggs in them. There are 3-4 of the jelly things in a cluster and two clusters in the whole Nano.

It is a 24G Nano with the following stock:
1 Drawf Lion
1 Mandarin
1 four stripe Damsel
1 blue devil damsel
1 common clown
1 bangaii cardianl

Torch coral
Radianthus
Sun coral
Tube anemone
2 Tube worms
1 turbo snail
few unidentified snails
4 Hermits
2 cleaner shrimps

Sorry I don't have a photo yet. Will try and get one tonight.

The egg sacks appeared while I was at work yesterday.

Hope ti is nothing bad like nudi's...

Or could be nudi.
Quite possibly, i doubt they could be id'd even with a good picture (unless they are in fact well known snails) but nudi's usually lay their eggs on the corals they munch.

I've been keeping an eye out for Nudi's at night with a torch and so far coudn't see any...

I'll upload the pic's tomorrow.

I'm not usre if there is even a pair of one particular snail except two limpets.
The egg sacks are almost as big as a limpet (mine anyway). 4 mm or so.

O.K. here it goes. It is very hard getting a clear pic.
This is the best I could do...
I counted about six little white eggs in the one sack.

Hi LappiesReef - this won't be nudi egg-sacks. More likely some snails of yours.... Congrats... It's not often that snails lay eggs in a marine tank... happen much more often in f/water!

Thanks J! I was so scared there are nudi's hiding somewhere...

Now to watch the eggs develop :p

This nano is full of surprizes so far! I love it. I don't watch TV anymore. Just nano live...

Nice Lappies,

I get that all the time in my nano. It's more than likely Cerith Snail eggs. I have literally dozens of tiny snails in my sump. They hatch readily.

Good question I also don't know :whistling:

It is hard and slimy to the touch. It is on one other rock as well...

Leosha did say taht whe played with Coraffix without success. In the beginning I thought it might be the glue she tried...Now I'm not too sure, it might be alive :p

Hope it is not a nasty...?
