I have snail eggs (white spots) on glass, now what?

Oh man, now I have white dots on the backside of my glass and a couple hanging from the top cover. I looked online and they are definatly snail eggs.

I do need more snails..should I keep them or scub them off?

Leave them and see what happens but most likely they will be food for your fish.

That's funny. Just the other day I noticed MANY tiny white dots all over my glass and down tubes. I also noticed a few tiny white sea stars that where not there previuosly. I thought the dots were sea star spwn, if there is such a thing.????

I scrubed many of them off the glass even though they were adhered rather well.
