Are these gbr eggs?

Just noticed this on my driftwood and my gbr make won't leave the area to eat. Didn't think they bonded cause this is my third pair I have had. First two pairs were always together and seemed to have an area of tank they preferred. This pair rarely swim together and are all over the place in the tank. Click image for larger version

They sure look like eggs.
If they stay that bright white they were not fertilized.
Good luck!

They should be amber by now if they are fertalised IMO.
If they are still bright white ??
You can vac now if you want safer then when the fry are free swimming ,so have at it incase some make it.
Rams can be very protective parents ,but they are not the best parents IMO.
They take many attempts to get things right IMO.

No color change so I assuming they are unfertilized. Female still guarding them and male seems less interested. Should I remove them or late nature take its course

Leave the eggs there for the parents to deal with.
It is not uncommon for new pairs to need "practice".
I have seen many pair that only one parent tended eggs/fry.

So eggs still white, but female is still furiously guarding them. Fiercely meaning found two dead Siamese algae eaters today in the area of the eggs. So I am guessing she did it. Lots of algae on that driftwood and the sae like to hang there. Would removing the eggs curb her aggression

The white eggs may not even be what she is guarding.
I have seen parents move good eggs to new spot leaving old behind as decoy perhaps,possibily even it is easier safer cleaner?
Look to see if they are guarding another spot.
The stale eggs will be gone sooner or later no matter who eats them.
