Questions About Mystery Snail Eggs

Zach72202

So I just picked up 5 mystery snails about a week ago, and I have two clutches of eggs in the tank already. I do want to breed the snails for a bit of profit and also supplemental food for my fahaka puffer once he gets larger, which is quite some time out, but still partially a plan.

Now, the current issue. I have the snails and the eggs in a 20H tank with guppies, the tank has a lid and the eggs are above the waterline, I am aware of this, but my questions are:

Will the guppies eat the newly hatched baby snails or should I take precautions against this?

How long should I expect for the eggs to take hatch? The first clutch is about 4-5 days old at this point.

Thank you!
