Got home this evening, feeding all the little hungry mouths, and noticed a small cluster of eggs in a corner of the aquarium, about 1-2" above the gravel. Looking around more carefully, I found three other little pods
of eggs, two of them at the opposite end of the tank, though all of these collections were all close to the top of the tank. I haven't noticed anybody seeming especially protective of those areas.
The eggs are opaque, about the size of the head of a pin, and in groups of about 5-10 eggs. The only fish I have in my tank that could possibly breed are black skirt tetras, assorted cory cats, or Bolivian rams. Off hand I would think they were snail eggs (especially since the little pods
are at opposite ends of the tank) but haven't seen any snails in months and it's probably been about six months since I've added any plants or decor, plus the rams and cories make pretty quick work of snails. Also no new fish acquisitions lately.
So, any guesses as to who these eggs might belong to? I'm still hoping that two of my rams will breed but it doesn't seem very likely that this is from them..
