Well i dont exactly know what zebra snails are but since they are snails botia loaches will eat the snails and so will dwarf puffers but i think dwarf puffers will need to be in a tank with only themselves

I belive these are the snails he mentioned Zebra Nerita Snail
http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...fm?pCatId=1076

they are laying eggs all over they are suppose to have salt or brackish water to reproduce so the eggs probably wont survive since they have a marine larval stage but the egg pouches are unsightly.

anyone have any ideas what will eat them ( just the eggs not the snails)

Hi

I don't think any thing will eat these eggs. I have the olive nerites and most of the time the only way I can get rid of them is to scrape them off the glass. That's about it. Of course you could do as the other guy said and put the eggs in a bowl with some salt water and hatch them. This way you can sell them and make some money to support your habit.
