This tangle of eggs is over 1.5" across! I'm used to seeing snail eggs on my glass every few weeks but never anything like this. I have Ceriths, Nassarius and Astreas, so I believe they must be from one of those (but definitely not one of the dwarf ceriths in the photo, lol).

It's hard to believe one snail could lay that many, not to mention how a snail could criss-cross like that while laying.

Dont see pic, but first thing that came to mind is Nassarius as they lay what is called a "mass" of eggs

Look like this ?

This has been happening every 3-4 days in my tank for the past few weeks, about that many also. I am pretty sure it is my Cerith snail, I normally see him leaving the scene after doing his business.
