Any newt or salamander experts in the house? Egg ID

shelleyd2008

So my son and I found these eggs while hunting for tadpoles. I thought they were salamander eggs but wasn't sure of the species. Looking online led me to believe they are tiger salamanders but the egg sac is not very big. Someone suggested they might be a type of newt but another online search shows me that this isn't likely. There's only one species of newt that might be in my area and their eggs LOOK like eggs...not a blob!

So anyway, I need some ID help. The eggs are obviously developing and I'd like to have some idea of what may come of them. I also have a lot of questions regarding their care. If anyone can help, I would be eternally grateful

The first 4 pictures are from when we found the eggs on September 6.

They do kinda look like Tiger Salamander eggs.
Have a look at this link:

I don't know, but lock your bedroom door when you go to sleep at night. If you hear any ruckus outside of your bedroom inside the house, jump out of your bedroom window...

Well they started hatching today and aren't newts or salamanders. They honestly look like bugs. Someone suggested they might be diving beetle larvae. Oh well, I guess the fish will like them
