    So my albino Cory cats just laid eggs and I was wondering if it would be safe to put the eggs in my 15g that has rcs, pond snails and rams horn snails, would they eat the eggs?

    No you should be fine. The snails usually leave eggs alone as long as they are well fed (IME) and the shrimp are actually good. I have heard cherry shrimp will actually clean the eggs and eat any fungus that begins to grow on them. Good luck!
