Nerite Snails #1
I have a few Nerite Snails in my tropical tank and they have laid a lot of eggs for some time now, but did not hatched. There are 5 in the tank, are they all female or is there a specific condition needed for the egg to hatch?

Re: Nerite Snails #2
The eggs need to be removed after hatching and placed in a brackish to saltwater environment in order for them to hatch.

Re: Nerite Snails #3
I'm about to setup a nano marine, would the eggs survive in that environment?

Thanks!
