Silverleaf209

I was going to move some wood around my tank and I noticed some white specks all over the wood is this eggs or some sort of fungus or just the way the wood has gotten used to the water? I am an beginner at nerite snail egg care so if that's what it end up being any tips would be helpful!

Oh okay good! So what do I do to get rid of them? Just scrape them off, or is it possible to let them just stay there?
 

StarGirl

Just let them stay there. They are impossible to scrape off. Get used to them is the only Nerite rule....;)

Okay, is there a way to tell the gender of a snail? All the things I searched up were no use.

If you have eggs you have a female. Do you have more than one?

Nerites are hard to sex. Idk if someone else knows a easy way. I know what mine are by just putting them in another tank and see if they lay any. But if you only have one tank......
