Looks like a baby snail. My newborn ramshorns look like that. Looks a little too big to be eggs.

lol ya i've had that happen even IF they're fake plants...if you've brought ANYTHING from another tank, you could bring snails...and that includes when you buy a new fish...theres always a chance that one could be on the net, or could have been on the ground when the lfs employee was chasing the fish into the ground (petsmart people do that a lot..drives me crazy they way they just torture the fish!!! but some of those people are good)

I've had that happen before, but luckily i saw the snail in w/the sand that was in the bag before i put the fish in the tank (i usually just dump the whole baggie full of water in the tank..after i acclimate of course)

also, have you brought in any used driftwood/rocks/gravel? if so, thats prolly your best bet of where it came from

The Botia Striata is the Zebra (Striped) Loach. One of the smaller loaches, perfect for smaller tanks as well as large. And a very good snail buster.

and you say that its NOT eating snails? hmmm...switch it for a clown loach!! actually your tank might be too small...what size is it? Thats weird tho, i've had about 5 different loaches, including the zebra, and they've all eaten snails...maybe there's not enough for him to find them?
