Because the sack is on my fish tank lid. Is it okay for me to remove this lid and have the egg sack facing up on a towel??

Sorry, absense means "not there." An infertile clutch means that the boy's sperm are not in it. So, I meant that if a boy snail isn't there, the eggs might be dead. I am not saying that is definitley what happened, just saying it is a possibility sometimes. But, I don't think you will know for sure until 2-3 weeks have passed because it takes 2-3 weeks for the eggs top hatch.

I have 2 adult snails in the tank so hopefully the eggs aren't dead. What did you think about the picture. The egg sack is on the hood of my fish tank lid. Will I be able to do a water change??

Oh yeah, you can do water changes. I would honestly just leave the eggs there, not you can take them out if you want. They need to kept warm and in humidity, so the tank lid is a good environment for them. But, you can move them is you want. I wouldn't put them on a towel because it could suck moisture away from the eggs.

Whoops. Sorry fro misunderstanding. Yes, thats fine. Make sure to not leave the lid off for too long because you don't want the eggs to get dry, but yes, its will fine for a quick water change.

Congrats hopefully they hatch for you! That would be awesome, are you going to keep the babies if they hatch? When you do a water change are you worried about water splashing up onto the sack?

I will keep some of the babies and if I do a water changer I am going to be very cautious.
