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!

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

Okay, thank you guys!

One of my pea puffers ate one off the snail, and then spit it out like he didn't like it lol
