I have just been cleaning my pond. All the pots had a cresent shaped jelly substance attached to them which was obviously filled with eggs. I have disposed of most of them.

The pond contains 4 goldfish, numerous snails and other unidentified wildlife. I live in Australia, so any ideas?

i remember i bred a large african snail (near impossible to breed in captivity), and it layed 100 pink eggs on the top of the tank per day for about 2 months

The crescents are about half an inch long and clear

It's probably snail eggs. It's not likely to be goldfish eggs since they are pretty small and usually get eaten.

I live on the Gold Coast (Aust) and after purchasing a couple of fish noticed a month later that I had all these weird tiny see through jelly like things stuck all through my filter - I'm sure they were snail eggs as it's happened to me before with another tank and I had tiny shells that time. I had to scrub quite hard to get them out - there were hundreds.
