Snail egg identification?

I bought some plants with hitchhikers.

Some are bladder snails, and I'm taking care of them with my true and tested technique. But today I found some white round dots, attached singularly to the glass and some to the plants.

They are not bladder snail eggs, nor mystery snail eggs. If I had to say, by size and color they look more like nerite snail eggs, but less opaque and with a less flattened shape. Also some have a "pointy" end.

In the tank I only have Neos, Mystery snails, Ember tetras and Pygmy Cory.


Any Idea?

Yes - they look like kind of like Cory eggs...? Can you see any little fish growing in any of them?

LOL I was fearing a new and horribly hard to remove snail, and instead they are my cute Pygmy Cory? Woah!!


How are the chances the will survive by themselves? Sadly they are in a point I cannot easily reach without moving everything.

(and no, I cannot see anything inside)

Sorry to say but chances of survival are slim to none if not moved to breeding net or box. A few may survive if tank heavily planted & established.
Spawning of corys occurs during the rainy season. When runoff enters water they inhabit it drops temp by few degrees & this will trigger spawning. Simply do a few colder(5į+) water changes & they will spawn again if interested in breeding. Just have a plan or rm. for fry. Good luck!
