Default Pulling Eggs

A tinctorius posited a clutch on a leaf yesterday. This particular tank has slugs and will usually eat eggs. I pulled the whole leaf and stuck it in a deli cup with a bit of water so the leaf isn’t trying to dehydrate the egg mass.

First, I assume trying to spatula the eggs onto a Petri dish is traumatic. Am I wrong? If so, what is protocol?

Second, I assume as the larvae breakdown their membranous sac, they can wiggle off the leaf into water all on their own? Upon which I will separate into individual cup.
