    hi ive got assassin snail eggs on some of my plants but I really need to do a full water change and clean up but I dont want to risk draining the tank if its going to effect the eggs so any advice woukd be helpful

    Cut the leaves with the eggs and let them sit on the bottom.

    When you say full water change and clean up ,you're not breaking down the tank to clean it are you?

    And with a partial water change, even if the eggs are not submerged for a bit it should not hurt them.

    Take the plants and lay them down. Keep the water above the eggs, and stand them back up when you've refilled the tank.

    so as long as the eggs are still submerged they will be ok ?
