What is it?

In the attached pic near left side of leaf is a line of eggs.
I have neon tetras, guppies & cherry red shrimp. Any idea what they could be from?

i know for sure it is not the guppies as guppies give birth to live fries.

Sadly

I'm fairly certain Neons are egg scatterers...so a bunched group of eggs like that is unlikely

Snails however...

I'm waiting and hoping my mystery snails have eggs, but no luck.

Thats a pain. Will the neons guppies eat the junior snails or eggs? Only have a ten gl tank. That many snails would not be good news

Mystery snails lay eggs out of water so check the hood of your tank, also lowering the water level will encourage them to lay eggs.

Sadly Neons will not eat them. Your best bet is to reach in there and smish the eggs. As cruel as that sounds.

Think it's gonna have to be that. If have any more snails it will become an issue for crs. Bloody things snuck in on a rogue plant
