    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Nerite snail eggs, harmless and most likely are not viable.

    They will go away on their own. The snails won't live. If you don't like the sight, ditch the nerites.

    I find them every once in a while on my rock and sometimes the glass. You can scrape them off. I usually just let them be and something usually eats them. I figure the worst that can happen is they hatch and add to my CUC.
