Do they look like this? These are clownfish eggs. Damsel eggs should look very similar.

The eggs will hatch 7-10 days after they are layed. You have to remove them from the tank and raise them in a seperate tank. You also need to grow or purchase rotifers for the fry to eat. Just do a Google search and you will find a ton of info.
