    If you are lucky you will get extra cuc, but most likely fish food or skimmer sludge.

    Yep those are snail eggs. Not likely to hatch but if your snails are spawning you might find a the odd small snail that survived.

    When you say, not likely to hatch, because they not fertilised or something else ?

    Especially when you think these creatures live on something we hate.

    Nice to see our tanks giving back sometimes :whistling:
