I have an enormous clutch of eggs that were left on the outside rim of the tank.  Are they still viable if they were not left in the water?  I've put them in a container for now, but plan on putting them in a breeder for flow if they are still viable.

Yea that isnt a kind of snail its a blanket term that usually covers any snail big enough to sell in a pet store.
But if they laid the eggs out of the water Id say thats where they were supposed to be.

They are the size of a brig with all purple shells.  I'll drain the water out of the container and see what happens.

as far as I know any period of being submerged is too much for them.
Bright side is they will probably lay again,once they start they usually keep at it.

You are the proud owner of purple brigs. Please read the profile linked below and don't get their next clutch wet if you want it to hatch. Smiley

Snails are a big part of a Musk Turtles diet. I highly doubt it will leave them alone. Both of my Stinkpots love eating them.
