    Someone please tell me this isn't what a slug looks like after a good meal.

    Found it hanging on a nozzle in my Benedicta tank. I haven't gotten eggs from these guys in ages despite courting. Maybe now I know why [emoji19][​IMG]

    Ugh slugs are the worst. Yes, they will eat eggs.

    Best bet I’ve found is pick them out as you see them. Pieces of iceberg lettuce in the tank can help attract them.

    I'm with Mike going have to pick them out as you see them. Where there one there's more i smudge spirulina powder on the side of the glass where it's damp.They crawl up the glass for easy removal i just use a piece of thin stiff cardboard to scoop them up.

    Boil some zucchini slices and put it in the tank over night. Take out the next day.
