    Default unidentified eggs, please help

    today i noticed some tiny tiny white specs on the glass of my tank. they are approximately 0.5mm each, there are a couple of clusters of 4-8 and some single ones dotted around the place. i am wondering if they are eggs and if so who they belong to??
    in the tank i have 16 neon tetras (i assumed not them because i heard they only spawn in environments that replicate their blackwater native habitat, and i believe they are also egg scatterers?), 6 three lined corydoras (thought most likely them but i thoguht their eggs were bigger than this), and 12 red cherry shrimp (but they carry their eggs under their tail). im stumped!
    could anyone help me out? the 'eggs' look white and aren't in a gelatinous clump or anything so im hoping that means they arent snail eggs. thanks!

    sorry about the bad picture! that out of focus white spot near the 21cm mark is a clump of 4 of them

    +1 to that. They should hatch in about 3-4 days in my experience (unless the neons pick them off).

    Do you happen to have a nerite snail in there? That's how they leave eggs - all over the place. Glass, plants, driftwood. They won't hatch or anything as they need brackish water, but they can be annoying. Still, I love how they work in my tanks so I keep them around and get used to the white dots.

    You could scrape some off and keep them in a floating fry saver. Planetcatfish has a good sticky in the cory section of the forum on what to do.
