EGGS!!!

8O

Ok, I'm not sure who the culprit is, but there appears to be some eggs in my mum's tank stuck on the side of the tank (tried to get a pic, but failed miserably), what should we do with them? Scrape them off and put them in another tank and see what they turn out to be (my bet is the recent addition, the snail) or leave them there?

Probably the snail. I would remove the eggs. What kind of snail is it?

Remove and keep or remove and destroy?

Not sure, it's shell is cone shaped, it appeared in my mum's water garden (might have been on a plant she put in there) and we thought it might help with the algae situation, which it seems to have done so...

What do the eggs look like? What else is in the tank besides the snail?

Small clear balls with a dot in them...
(just fished them out and put them in a tupperware tub with some tankwater)

5 fish altogether, 3 fancy goldfish type fish, 1 Weather Loach and a Pleco (or could be another species of loach if www.loaches.com is correct)...

Oh, and a plant....

Sounds like typical pond snail eggs. I'd throw them out. They breed like crazy and you'll have a ton of them in no time.

Do you think my local pet shop would buy them? If not I'll just put them in the watergarden where I got the Parent snail from...

I doubt it. They are pretty common almost to the point of nuisance. I don't think the lfs will buy them. They will do fine in the watergarden. I add them to mine every year.
