I got this piece of drift wood for my 5g Betta tank and it's awesome. I was warned before I bought it that there is a pond snail overpopulation problem and there were snails on the wood so I said, "cool beans gimme gimme." Well, I got the snails off the drift wood and gave it a bath in extremely hot water before adding it to the tank. It looked clean so I added it. Weeks later all these tiny white-ish snail eggs starting popping up all over. So I cleaned the tank really well trying to get most of them out and I boiled the driftwood for 10 minutes and scrapped the eggs off it. Now a couple more days later and more snail eggs are popping up! Now, I do have a Zebra Nerite snail in this tank but I am not convinced that it's laying the eggs. I only say that cuz I did find one baby pond snail when I boiled the drift wood. Again this tank is only 5 gallons so it's not like there's that many places for a snail to hide. The eggs keep popping up on the driftwood and in the corners of the tank. Like what the heck! Should I try removing the Nerite and see if it's the issue? I have other Nerites and none of them lay eggs. I am so confused on how these eggs keep popping up like daisies! How do I get rid of them?!
