    I arrived home today to find this...

    Now I need some help/answers please...

    I know he/she layed eggs (snails are hermaphrodite)

    -Should I leave the eggs to hatch?
    If Half of them hatch and reach any kind of size my 25l tank would be to the brim with snails :eek:
    If ten percent of them die, the nitrate/amonia spike would kill everything else in my tank (again, just 25l) :eek:

    What should I do?

    At least now I know they like me... :biggrin:

    Dude it is not very common for them to even hatch so if they do you will be lucky. Also if they do hatch then im sure your fish will be fed for a while, so I would not worry to much about them polluting the tank if you leave them
