Baby snails ? ?

Is it possible that my Nacarius (spelling??) snail is having babies. I did not see 1 little patch of eggs but now I watch these little white worm like things coming out from under her shell and going for the algea on my glass.... they move really fast for their size... I saw abot a hundred or so.

Thanks

I posted some pictures of different snail eggs (including Nassarius) in >>this thread<< -- take a peek and see if they look like what you have.

HTH,

Well they are past the egg stage now. I just hope these are little snails and not a bad critter that will cause problems. They range from 1/32 to 1/16 of an inch.

How often do they lay there eggs?

I have two Nassarius snails in there right now.
