Urgent! Urgent! Help!!!!

Ok so I have a 125 gallon tank with 2 big adult oscar that ive had for about 2 weeks. And I also have a convict that ive had for several months. Now I just found eggs attached to the wall of the tank!! Whos are they? Ive had the convict for months so I doubt its her. Is it the oscars??? Oh please help! Please!! The convict seems to be protecting the eggs also. But how could it be her if ive had her for months?

I also doubt if it was the oscars they would let the con that close to the eggs.

wow you would think someone was getting an arm cut off with that post. Its the convicts and the eggs aren't fertilized so someone will eat them.

Oscars don't lay on the side glass. They would dig to the bottom and lay on that glass if needed. It's the cons eggs.

It seems to me that if you have had the con. Longer it would make more sense that it was the one laying the eggs. Also if they were the oscars most likely they would not let the con. Near the eggs.
