I have the same bowl with java moss in it...I would try even less rocks, what your planning doesnt really need much substrate, and the less rocks, the more water!

So, some bits of ends of my moss looks like they either have white looking worms on them or are turning whiteish themselves (looks more like the 2nd to me), does anyone have any idea of what this is?

Default Horned nerites!

I have been very happy with my nerites from a guy on ebay, if you want info. Not so happy with other dealers and a dealer on this website. PM me if you want the name of the ebay guy.

So my generic whatever snail it is that people said I had laid eggs, I'm wondering though, do these need a second snail to fertalize? Or will I soon be covered in these snails? Lastly do I need to take any special care to keep them alive? They are currently just below the water line.

These little critters are hermaphrodites--and no doubt yours had access to a partner before going in the bowl.

Hatching generally happens in 10-20 days, success depends on a tons of factors. No special care needed other than making sure they stay wet. They'll be readily visible on the glass and easy to remove if you start getting too many.

While large tanks often seen population explosions due to the amount of food naturally available in the way of decaying plant material, bio-film, etc. these sort of micro tanks typically balance out from any population boom very quickly. Indeed, under conditions of minimal to zero additional feeding being done (or high competition from other life in the bowl) adult pond snails will lay less and even eat their own egg masses, greatly diminishing the rate of reproduction.
