    I recently got a couple dozen MTS mainly to feed my pea puffers. After putting them in, I found 2 or 3 snails with eggs(?) On the back of their shells. Is this anything I need to worry about?

    Thank you for your help! 20180419_111548.jpg

    I'd be willing to bet wherever you got them from had them with nerite snails. Looks very much like their eggs and they are well know for laying them on anything

    I had a nerite that laid eggs on my Mystery snail. They looked like that.

    I have 2 nerites in a 15 gal and they lay their eggs on everything. They look just like that.
