    Looks like the nassarius snails are leaving some eggs on the glass...should I just scrap them off or try to suck them out.....don't think I want tons of nassarius babies in my tank with all the baby trochus snails.

    I had a nassarius do the same. Freaked me out at first. No fish touched them. But it was so unsightly, so I just scraped them off the glass =P

    Hopefully they'll do it again, but in a better spot than dead center of the front view.

    Would they hatch and do fine in the DT? Or will they most likely just become food?
