It's a mystery...

So I go to bed with 14 peppered cory eggs in my breeding net and I have now woken to find absolutely nothing left.. they were at the bottom so no snails could get to them.. they could have hatched because it was that time but even the white infertile egg has gone.. I have heard of fish sucking them through the bottom of nets but I wouldn't have expected to get them all if this was the case as they were scattered about... pleaseeeee help!

Next time I'm going to put the eggs in a solid plastic breeding trap and see what happens then... I have another mystery if your able to help.. my two platy's have been pregnant for what must nearly be 2 months.. I know this is not normal but what would cause them to hold onto their young? I've tried them in the breeding net where they seemed totally relaxed and still they didn't drop :/
