    What do healthy snail eggs look like? Are they supposed to be gooey or what? The outside of mine seem kinda dry.

    Not gooey looking but not dried out either! Just make sure you keep them moist by squirting tank water on them twice a day. If your tank is humid, you may not have to do that. Where did she put the clutch?

    Good luck and hopefully in a few weeks, you will start seeing some babies!!!

    Thanks. She put them on the side just above the water line. I've kept it about 2inches low just for this reason. I'm excited but I don't think I caught it in time. They were dry and kinda hard when I found them. I did break it open so it would fit on the piece of styrofoam I have it floating on and the inside is still moist. How long till they hatch? If they hatch.

    Thats good you did that ( the styrofoam )
    Normally all mine have taken between 12 - 20 days to hatch. You will start to notice the eggs getting dark spots when they are ready. Just keep watering them but make sure you don't keep them drenched, otherwise you will start to see the eggs getting moldy.
    Good luck! Can you post a picture?
