    Caught my turbo snails spawning the other night, I was looking at getting some more but is there anything I can do to increase my chances of this spawning turning into baby snails?

    Was actually really cool to see, all 3 climbed to high points on the rocks and spurted it out into the water column seemed to go on for a while.

    I think I can see where some of it has landed, on the skimmer intake to my HOB unit there is a glistening patch the looks like bubbly goop. Would it be best to try move this to somewhere in my sump with less flow so they have a chance?

    My tank runs on strong flow and turbo snails spawn like rabbits. I would say predators are the only concern, such as Butterfly and Angel fish, . Otherwise, just wait for a couple of months.

    Thanks, Franklin always to the rescue. I think mine just must be getting thrown around by flow or eaten by the angelfish the patches of eggs always seem to disappear. Kind of just hoping one day the eggs go over the overflow so they'd be safe and can grow on the siporax i have in the weir
