    hey

    you can either leave them in the tank to ha tch but as they are small sometimes they are hard to find
    you could carfully take them out and make sure they a damp and lightly covered with soild or moss or waht ever you use and they will hatch if they are fertile take 1-3 weeks to hatch
    make sure temp is 19- 28 Oc

    when they start hatching feed them lettuce for a few weeks

    I carefully scoop the eggs out with a spoon and place them in a closed container. I leave them in a room at normal room temperature and they hatch in 3 weeks. When they're born it's important to feed the baby snails with a mixture of vegetable peelings, such as carrot , potato and also dandelion leaves. This is because a varied diet promotes a nicely patterned shell. And they also need to gnaw at eggshells so they can get the calcium they need to help their shells stay strong.
