In a freshwater tank Nerite Snail eggs will not hatch, but they still lay the eggs. Would other creatures such as Shrimp, Catfish, and Livebearers eat the eggs? Mine all seem to love eating pond snail eggs.
None of my inhabitants eat the eggs ( I wish they would because they are so darn tough to get off of the ornaments/glass )
My pleco goes near the eggs but I suspect they are just too tough to eat - my mts or cory's don't bother with it either!
