    Snail eggs, I'm afraid. Sorry. Shrimp don't lay eggs as a general rule they carry them till they hatch.

    snail eggs?... looks like calcium deposits they leave on rocks to me. (?) When I had zebra snails they would leave these on the glass, rocks and driftwood. Annoying to remove from driftwood.

    Nah, definitely snail eggs, just average run of the mill pond snails, not zebra nerites. Look like white "seeds" in a clear jelly right, Jason?

    They're hard to remove, if you're getting a snail boom reduce feeding it will help knock back numbers. Snail killers wipe out everything without a spine in a tank, shrimps, the lot so it's worth avoiding them.

    This is a Caridina_sp_Gulf1 "Darwin Red-Nose Shrimp" I do not know if these are sold out of Aust

    See how she is carrying her eggs, when ready to hatch she will go into a dense plant growth and the shrimplets will pop out of their eggs and stay there for a few days, then venture out.

    At a rough guess snail eggs, squash them if you have not done already.

    A Clown Loach will clean them all up for you, its not only the snails its all the unhatched eggs that he has to find and snack on.

    Do not use any chemicals as this will cause you far more problems than when they are alive.

    Nope, clowns will lay waste to your shrimp, they also get way too big for your 60cm tank. Assasin snails are a better bet and (cheaper).

    No, still dose daily. It's no extra effort realllllly to dose at the same time as feeding the fish or what have you.
