    I think those are just nerite eggs (the photos look like blurry blobs, so I'm assuming!) :). You don't have to worry; they won't hatch and will eventually disintegrate away from the the lack of salinity. Nerites just drop and go when it comes to eggs; they'll lay on anything and everything.

    As long as it looks like he isn't dropping parts of his body or excess slime, I believe you're in the clear :)

    What other snails do you have in the tank? The nerites should not have any babies. What do they look like? They may be hitchhikers
