Apple snail eggs

Hi I have a question as to what to do with the snail eggs. My Apple snail laid the eggs outside of the aquarium on the water filter area and I donít know how to move them but I know when they hatch they are likely to fall and most likely to die from the impact. I tried to load the picture but I donít know if it loaded.

Go to the care section and scroll down past reproduction to eggs!!!

The snail egg babies breathe air and will drown if submerged. Some people keep them in a floating plastic container attached to the side of the aquarium. They crawl down to the water. You will probably be able to see the color change for them as they grow! Very fun to have babies. Do not scrub your glass (at least on the sides and back) so that the babies will have plenty of biofilm.
