Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

My Certh snails lay eggs on the glass all the time. None of them ever hatch, I think my Maculosus Angel eats them.

Maybe you could cover them with something if you would like them to hatch. A five sided plastic box with holes in it comes to mind. I am not sure how long it takes them to hatch but good luck whatever you do

How does a snail's eggs looks like? Do snails need to have a mate in order to lay eggs?

I must say that I have had snail eggs for 3 months and never thought about anything but them being a little snack for my fish, but today I noticed a very small snail on my glass. I know I did not add this snail, so I am assuming it must have actually survived and hatched. It looks to be a nassurius, but I will have to let it get bigger to really tell. I will try and post a pic later.
