You can float the clutch on a piece of Styrofoam in the aquarium. You will need to secure it to the side to keep it away from the down flow of the filter.

You can use almost anything to create a shelf inside the tank and lay the clutch on it. When the snails hatch they will fall into the water. (ex. soap dish)

You can take a Tupperware bowl and poke holes in it. Place a thin towel or something similar over the hood light and then place the bowl on the towel. Put/Keep dechlorinated water in the bottom of the bowl.

Just pop the clutch off. It will come off easily simply by using your fingers and making a small twisting motion.

I just use styrofoam, chris. You want something that's going to keep the eggs from getting sopping wet, but you want them floating in water so there will be plenty of humidity and they don't dry out. Loosely cover the container--you want to allow for air flow but keep the humidity in at the same time. I cover with a damp washcloth or a paper towel.
