Thats awesome if they stay moist there they will hatch but there are a few experts here who will guide you better than me, if you decide to leave them there do a video when they hatch

I successfully hatched a clutch. Take a small tupperware container (disposable one) & cut air holes in the lid. Wet a paper towel with aquarium water. Set the clutch on top of the wet paper towel. Close the lid & let it float on top of the water, right below the lights. Just keep making sure to keep the paper towel damp with aquarium water. It took my clutch almost 4 weeks to hatch. Here are some pics! I don't know why they're sideways? BabyMysterySnails2.jpgBabyMysterySnails.jpg

I kind of doubt it.Theres not much water splatter going on so I'd probobly have to manually mist them or rig something up to keep them moist.The bamboo that they are on can be lowered closer to the water line and i might be able to use a small bubbler or airline to keep the clutch damp.If not I'll try the paper towel and plastic container method suggested in another post.
