I haven't been out to my tank with a flashlight at night... so I don't know much about the nightlife in my tank.
May or may not be eggs but by the sounds of the description, they definately sound like it. A pic would be a big plus. Even though you might not have purchased any snails, most LR
comes with at least some freebie's
Bummer about the inverts. Would a snail be quick enough to get back in its shell in time? Or are they out too? Brittle stars? I feel I need something cleaning my sand, that puffer is a pig!
btw, thanks to both for the quick responses!
Brittle stars would be "shredded" pretty quickly and with snails it's not a matter of speed or hiding. Once the puffer gets a grip on the shell it"crunch" time. 8O
How old is the tank? Most new tanks are not that great for sand sifting gobies, but one that I have found to do a good job of sand and accepts aquarium foods quite easily is the Dragon/Bar Goby
Just do not mix it with wrasses or other aggressive bottom feeders.
