    Default Egg Mass?

    Hi,

    This morning I saw what appears to be an egg mass in my tank. It looks like tiny red eggs in a gelatenous mass with a mucus coating and was about 1 inch in diameter. My thought would be snail eggs. I have astrea and nerite snails so they might be theirs. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Belongs to neither one of those snails. What else do you have in the tank?

    As to what other inhabitants are in the tank, aside from the astrea and nerite snails, a few scarlet hermits, few blue hermits, one electric blue hermit, many tiny seastars, 2 cleaner shrimp, 1 pistol shrimp, 2 ocellaris clowns, 1 flame angel, 1 yellow tang, and 1 yellow goby.

    I do have a corals and a rose anemone, but cannot imagine them producing an eggmass like this. However, the hatched critters appear similar to the planula larval stage of cnidarians.

    Unfortunately I don't have a better picture. I did get a sample last night. By this morning there were tiny critters swimming around (so they were viable). When I observed them with a microscope they were cilliated and about a 1/4 mm long. It appears that most all of them have hatched in the tank. I have a vial of a few of them, not sure what to do with them.Name:  20160414_113037.jpg
