    What is this sorcery?

    snail eggs?

    Do I need to kill it with fire?

    Looks like snail eggs, perhaps pond snail, I have them going nuts in my tank, someone else can confirm that it isn't any kind of fish.

    Its looks most like the eggs of bladder snails, but could also be ramshorn or pond snail eggs. I have tons of it in my tank.

    The only snail I have is one on the picture they are sort of common invasive snails? I was going to buy some nerite or assassin snails at some point but nothing else.
    But yeah I need to get rid of it. I hope one of my fish will eat it :)

    Just saying, I loved the way you ask your question lol

    And yes you have ramshorn snails, assassins will rectify the situation (takes a bit of time) and they would love the opportunity to do so for you too! Don't get nerite if you plan on assassins. My first assassin immediately tried to kill a golf ball size mystery snail and within an hour of removing the mystery snail was going after a nerite....

    Definitely snail eggs, although when I put new plants in they go behind the heater and filter and on the underside of plant leaves

    it'll be fine. I have a few snails in my tank and they are for the most part nice little dudes. They help eat uneaten food at the bottom and their population fluctuates every now and then but have never caused any damage or gotten to the point where I need to do something. Have fun with the snail babies.

    Snail eggs! If you have loaches or a pea puffer let them grow into tasty snacks for your fish!

    I only got 2 kuhli loaches, since I let them in to the tank I didnt see them since.

    This week I will be replacing my blue gravel out with pool filter sand and replanting stuff. That should decimate their pop. in case the tiney ones are hiding in plane sight. Also going to introduce few assasin snails today
