huge emergency! Have to leave in 1 hour

I have to leave in 1 hour, that's all the time I have...

I was cleaning the tanks and finally decided to clean Fillet's tank... I changed the water Sunday and I have NO idea how I let this miss.... My snail laid some eggs.... So cute... The father died... but the sad thing is, it's fine that I didn't change the water but I don't know what to do! They were all dried some already hatched (?) even though I didn't find them.. I'm not sure the dried ones died.. I put some water on just to moist it again.. I know they can drown, I just moist it.. But what can I do?!?!?!? Maybe that's why Fillet got it's pop-eye? Idk! HELP!

I don't want the eggs to just die, it was their first spawn and I loved the snail that died :C! I can't see the "babies" though.. I put some food on the aquarium.. idk! :C! The parameters are fine on that tank, I would just dry it up because I'm not using it.... omg I'm desperate, HELP!


There was no way I could have spotted it... I was waiting it for weeks.. But omg.. =/





That's me on the photo alright.

I really gotta go now.. I have a play to go to... =/

I removed the egg-sack from the top of Fillet's aquarium and carefully put them on a floaty surface on my 10g where the mother snail is aaand where there's an moist environment.. if they have a chance of survival there it is.. even though there's 5 females wiling to eat them ._.

Anyway I will be back in 3ish hours... Let's see if we get anything new. =/

sorry, just returned from Shakespeare Globe :P

Even though I had to make a rush and leave everything more or less careless.. It seems fine.. I will take a pic in a sec...

-------------------------

Well yeah.. might be the light but it looks slightly colourful than before... And the eggs are now moist.. When I put some water before the water would soon disappear between the eggs.. Now I tried to do the same and they just wouldn't blend in, the drops would stay on the top of the eggs... So maybe this is a good sign.. it looks like I lost the hatching day and they haven't hatched any since I came back... but idk, let's hope for the best.
