    So, there are a bunch of tiny white things on the glass, about half the size of a grain of rice. They are white, oblong, and have tiny white antennas, like the ones you see on trochus snails.

    I'd get pics, but they are too small!

    im not a sqeemish person, but something about "snail babies" makes me want to gag.

    when my snails are on each others backs my girlfriend calls them "snail parties"

    Congrats on the baby snails.
    Some times you'll get lucky and have 1 or 2 survive.
