I found some mystery snail eggs. I scraped them off the glass and put them in a closed jar with a wet paper towel floating in the tank. Should I do anything else? How long do they usually take to hatch?
Mystery Snails will surprise you. You need to make sure there’s air getting into the jar. The clutch (eggs) need air.
Since it’s the first clutch they may or may not hatch. Humidity and warmth are good for the clutch.
I have been opening the jar about 1 hour every day and spraying water every few minutes to make sure it doesn’t completely dry.
The eggs have a very strong kind of rotten smell. Does this mean they won’t hatch?
