So, here's the deal. I have a couple ramshorn snails, and I wouldn't mind having more.

Then I found one decent sized pond snail. ...and then another smaller one.

In the last week, I've discovered now something like SEVEN clutches of snail eggs. I had previously been led to believe that snails drop a clutch of eggs every month or so, but given the rate that I'm seeing them develop, I'm not prepared to have ~60 new snails next week—and that's assuming no additional clutches before those hatch!

So here's my super weird question: is there a way to differentiate between ramshorn and pond snail egg clutches? So far they're all superficially identical—yellow-tinged, clear, jelly-like clusters of 5-15 eggs, all somewhere close to a 90° angle (under the breeder net, just above the substrate, etc.). I've attached one picture, but they're all very similar (and a few of them are out of reach). In the photo the clutch is right by the guppy's mouth.

Thoughts? Opinions? Experience? Solutions?

there really isnt a way to tell them apart until they hatch to be honest
