My bladder snail laid eggs ON my MTS

See the attached image for the bladder snail eggs on an MTS; an egg sack on either side. I thought this was a strange choice, but I try not to judge my snails - we're so different after all.

Also, I noticed that when the two species became tank mates the bladder snails were crawling all over the MTS in minutes. Anyone know why this might be the case?

The MTS might have had "dirty" shells that the bladder snails were "cleaning" up.

That's just rude.

Reminds me of when the little yappy dog marked his territory...

which happened to be the head of the sleeping 145lb dog.

Very, very rude.

Funny stuff! I've had nerites tag each other's shell before too
