    On the left side of the bottom filter box I found a red egg sack attached to the side. It was a red-orange color, about an inch long, half inch wide, with white dots (assuming those are the eggs). It was hard on the outside but squishy on the inside once I scrapped it off. I didn't get a picture of it.

    Was wondering if anyone could ID what this was.

    Yes! That's it!

    Phew- I was afraid it was some insidious insect. I just have one mystery snail. If I left them, would they hatch? And they lay their eggs above the water?

    Yes it's very warm out here (AZ). They really will hatch based on temperature? Even if there's not two snails?

    Snails are hermaphrodites, so they don't necessarily need two to do it!
