Strange it’s only in one tank- my other 6 are fine. Maybe they got triggered by the hardwater? Excess nutrients? As it is very heavily planted.
Any solution to remove them?
They usually go away by themselves if Nerite eggs (which I do believe is correct)
Nerites will lay eggs and they do hatch but don't survive past that stage in FW...
Also it's "periodic"which is why you don't see them consistently in this and other tanks..
For me, after a usual initial "dump" of eggs it slows to a few to none..
I have about 30 Nerites in my 40b.. and "believe" few eggs atm..
I'll check since I've pretty much learned to ignore them in these overly grown tanks..
Couldn't even guess what triggers them nor do I care much...
Thier benefits outweigh their cost..
It would just be more "chasing parameters"..
I've seen them clean a tank in a few days..
It's sort of amazing.
compared to what I've seen.. you seem to have few...One thing though.. is they do like heaters..
