Can anyone give me some info on how long assassin snails carry eggs and how long it takes for the eggs to hatch?

Just noticed 6 eggs in my tank today and I'm getting excited lol!

I have about 500 assassin snails and I have never seen an egg, I'm not sure if I'm just not seeing them, but I haven't seen any. How many adults do you have? are there still pest snails in there?

I have 4 adults in the tank.

They are not in a cluster they are spread out (I should have mentioned that). Mr ed that is exactly them in the video thanks for the info to! Looks like I'm in for a long wait lol.

When I am cleaning the substrate do I need to take precautions so I don't harm the babies when they hatch ?

I'm very unhappy with my assassins at the moment. I have 2 in my shrimp tank and currently *had* 5 very fat and happy pregnant RCS and woke up this morning to see an assassin snail sucking the guts out of my most firey red shrimp :( picked the frickin thing up and basketball shot/threw it across the room into my other tank out of anger lol. It was a nice shot though ;P
