Nassarius Snail Eggs

So my snail has laid some eggs all over the front of my tank. (Which makes me super excited because I love Nassarius snails) but I have a few questions
1. How long before they hatch?
2. I am guessing their changes of survival? (Pretty low I am assuming)
3. Is there any way I could scrape off the eggs and put them in a safe area to hatch and grow?

In any case I believe they are Nassarius snails. Could totally be wrong about species.

I like the shell, trying to put a few different types in my tanks, could provide some cool decoration when they die of age

This guy I believe is a tiger Nassarius snail, and he has a pretty cool shell.
I actually bought a bunch of those type of shells at the dollar store. Click image for larger version

Ooh the trumpet snails are interesting looking! I like the shape!
Have you ever had snails reproduce?

Not yet, this is my first time putting snails in but I talked to someone who raises them. He basically just said don't touch the eggs let it happen naturally and it doesn't take but a week and a half or so for some eggs to hatch and the babies to crawl down

I hope mine just fall into the sand and live in there. Without being immediately eaten.
I wish I could somehow make their chances at survival higher. I am cursing the snail mom for not laying the eggs on the rocks.

Maybe... Idk tape your fish net so it kind of contains the eggs like a cage? At least till they hatch and you can observe them
