I've got a school of ten and it would be fun to be able to recognize the eggs if they decide to do any breeding.
Tetras are scatter breeders so they will scatter eggs, usually in bushy plants, and the other fish will probably eat them if you have them in a community tank. ( Even the parents will eat some eggs.) Tetra eggs are usually clear round tiny balls so unless you have really good eye sight, you might need a magnifying glass to see them.
FYI: Tetra eggs are photosensitive so they will not do well in a well lit aquarium. You will see them better when they die because they will be white.
Hope this helps
