Help I donít know what this is

Hello

I am new to fish keeping and was wondering if someone could help me. I have had this stuff in the picture popping up around my tank I have cardinal tetra, guppies and platy in my tank. I was wondering if this may be egg spawn from the cardinal it has just started popping up out of no where and I have no ideas what this is

Thank you in advance for any help

Weigh down a big piece of lettuce just before lights off. Check in a few hours. If the lettuce is covered with snails then pull and pitch. I wouldnít leave the vege in the water more then a day or so

Snail eggs. Just pich them or pull them out. Not harmful if they don't hatch.

Not to be the bear of bad news but itís really hard to get rid of snails my uncle had a snail problem he took everything out of his tank bleached it and everything in it waited a few weeks then set up his tank again and sure as heck in 3 weeks they where back if u can for next time ask if any of the plants before u get them if they have been with snails because of snail eggs

Hello, if your tank is 20gal+ you could get a yoyo loach. From what I've researched can be kept as single or groups of 3+. Sz is 3"- 5". I have 1 & he does great job w/snails & hangs w/my blood red parrot. Active & playful w/tankmates. Hope this helps!Click image for larger version
