Eggs MTS or other

I am reasonably sure I have MTS eggs stuck on the aquarium glass but since I have MTS in all my tanks and have never seen eggs before I would like confirmation from those who have more experience than me. Besides MTS tank contains Danios tetras & corys. Would post a pic but can't figure out how

Most like Cory eggs. MTS are livebearers and the danios lay non-adhesive eggs. I think tetra eggs are adhesive.

Agreed. They're tiny and laid on surfaces like the glass. If they were fertilized by a male cory there's a chance that they hatch if they don't fungus over.

Eggs id confirmed - still need help though

So they are cory eggs from a pair I put in the tank 2 days ago. I have scraped as many off the glass as I could & put them in a fish net by the filter overflow til I can get a net breeder at the LFS tomorrow. Other than fuzzy how do I tell if they are viable & how long til they hatch?

Most will be amber and will have tiny black dots inside if fertile. If infertile, they will be pure white and will rot soon.
