Tank help, ID eggs?

Good afternoon

55g tank with 6 albino cory cats, 5 female guppies, 3 male guppies, 2 male cobra guppies, and 6 glo tetras. sand substrate, non planted.

1 of the female guppies looked very pregnant and as i was going to get a floating breeder divider to place her in she died. and ironically at the same time there are eggs stuck to the side of the tank overnight.

wife sent me this video to me this morning. Was thinking of getting that divider, an air stone, methylene blue and separating them to see what happens.. i have never had snails so those are out of the question..

so, are these eggs from the cats?

any suggestions on what to do?

thanks in advance,

chris

Guppies don't lay eggs, they give live birth, so it can't be them. It honestly sounds like the corys are the culprits to me. I know tetras are also egglayers but I doubt that it's them. I can't see the video because it won't load, so that's as much help as I can give. Hope this helps!

It's loaded, but it won't let me watch it? Maybe if you could get a picture of what you're trying to show me, it might be a problem with my browser...

I'd guess corys. They usually lay on the glass like that. Can't wait to see your little babies!
