Killer fighting conch

Not sure of the name of these little snails (nerfite?) but one of them laid a bunch of eggs on the glass in a lower turbulence area in the DT...then it started it's way back down to the sand and out of the depths rises my fighting conch and proceeds to climb the glass meeting the smaller snail halfway...seconds later I look over and it has the other snail in its foot and it lets go of the glass and falls to the sand...about 20 min later the conch has the snail out of its shell and completely in its foot other than a small white spot...it has never attacked any other snail before and it eats well...any ideas?
And what are the chances of the snail eggs hatching?Click image for larger version

I've seen lots of snails reproduce in tanks.... I'm not familiar with those... But it can happen.
