Zebra Nerite eggs

I made a post about what algae eaters should I buy on the last one. So, I decided to buy 3 Zebra Nerites since the algae grows a lot everyday. After the first day I bought, I started seeing their eggs on my filter, which I scraped them off. Then I saw an egg on my wood, I was thinking if I hatch this one and tried to hatch more, I can start a business!

I heard that they only hatch in brackish water and then grow in salt water. The question is, what do ZN larvae eat? I want to try this experiment 😊.

Here's the lone egg, its in the middle of the wood:

We have three Nerite snails and the eggs show up everywhere. I am just glad to have snails that work great helping keep the tank clean but don't keep multiplying!
