Hopefully that helps! i tried looking in the tank to see if there were any other eggs but it mainly seems like the 5 or six bunches on the glass
Any snails? Most snails lay eggs on the glass in aquaria
My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .
nope no snails, i did just get a longnose whiptail ? but on its own
sounds like cory eggs to me. Google "cory eggs" and see if that looks like what you have.
300 gallon mega tank
: build in progress
75 gallon community tank
: tetras, danios, corys, platies, otos, pearl gouramis, bristlenose pleco, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
70 gallon growout tank: clown loaches, sailfin pleco
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
29 gallon frog tank / 10 gallon tadpole tank
: 1 leopard frog, 1 tadpole
10 gallon and 5.5 gallon betta tanks: 1 male betta each, sometimes snails

Cory cats spawn fairly often in aquariums, but raising fry successfully is a completely different story. Lot of time and effort would be involved, and another tank would be much more likely to work than a net breeder.
fry are doing well
thanks everyone for your help, indeed they were cory eggs, i didnt manage to save a large amount but i managed to get a few and now have 20 fry that are just under 1cm living in a small seperate tank. they are getting big quickly! more of a suprise i was watching my tank the other night with a lights off and i saw a juvi corry appear, he is about 2cm and somehow has managed to survive and grow in the tank!! he must just sneak out at night and have a snack!
Nice, 2cm in what time table? Got like 8 in mine right now, eggs.
