    We've got a ton of those in our tank. Snail eggs...margarita I think but I'm not positive.

    I haven't seen any baby margarita snails so I'm not sure that our tanks can "handle" the juveniles of this species. Either way, every available surface in our tank is covered with these little packets.

    Good question but I have no idea. I see no adverse effects to these snails eggs though. One day they're there and the next day, they're gone so they're either hatching or being eaten, or both :)

    ok good. do you ever seen the snails after they've hatched(?) can you tell they are in your tank after they do?

    The only juvenile snails that I've seen in my tank and refugium are ceriths and those are definitely not their eggs.
