    Default Pink Spots on 10G Wall

    First, I'm posting this here because I'm not sure which category it would go under.

    Tank Info:
    Ember Tetras
    Yoshiki Rice Fish
    Mini Asian Catfish
    Nerite Snail
    Mystery Snails
    Assassin Snails
    Pond Snails (that keep coming back)
    Live Plants on Driftwood
    Ammonia 0
    Nitrites 0-.2
    Nitrates 0~.1
    Weekly 30-50% WC

    So I noticed one spot a while ago but spots that have appeared like that in the past were normally eaten by one of the snails. However, now there are three more of those spots and my snails just move around them. Honestly, they're so small I can't get a good enough look myself. Any ideas?

    P.S.
    I went back to take a picture and the two closest to my ammonia reader had moved. I THINK that might be baby snails but I'm honestly not sure.

    Thanks! <3

    Too hard to tell from the pic what those are.

    How many assassin snails do you have?...how many pond snails?

    I get these little white snail things in tanks without fish, I think they are limpets.

    Do they look like this?

    I have 2 assassins. The pond snail population is way less than it used to be. Now there's maybe five and that's a big maybe. I just know that I see a couple here and there once in a while. And no, angel. They don't look like that. At least, I don't think so. They're super small right now so I can't really tell.

    If the spots do not move around, they may be nerite eggs. Nerites tend to lay single eggs randomly scattered around the tank on hard surfaces.

    I noticed that two of them did move shortly before I took the picture above but now they're stationary and there's an additional one on the back wall of the tank.

    So I just got home from work and went to check on my fish. I have an auto-feeder for them now and it works really well so I just need to make sure the mysteries aren't, like, eating them or anything. And I was looking for my Asian stones (they are camouflage masters) when I noticed that the bottom of the tank and my driftwood were covered with more pink dots/balls. One of my other fish swam by some of the ones on the bottom and they rolled around in the wake. And it got me thinking. Two of my female Youkihi (which I mistakenly called Yoshiki) have had eggs attached to the backs of them on and off for a couple weeks now. And after I did research, I learned that only happens after the eggs have been fertilized. Is it possible these pink things are actually fish eggs?

    The first picture is of one of the pieces of driftwood. The second one is of the most open section of the bottom of the tank.

    To be honest these look like fish eggs to me.

    A nice build up of mulum for the fry if it is the case.

    See the part under "Reproduction"...

    What other fish are in the tank?...what temp is the tank?
