Yesterday, I planted new plants in my tank and added a Sterbai cory. So right now I have 2 sparkling gouramis and the new cory. This morning I saw those strange little white things on one of the new plant.

Are those eggs? (See pictures) If not should they be removed from the tank ?
I know the gouramis makes bubble nest so I don't think it could be them.

As anyone already saw those?

Those are probably eggs of pest snails.

Still check with the others...

They really look like kallililly1973 link. They probably are pond snail eggs ... Should get rid of them ASAP if I don't want an invasion ... right?

Correct, once they start populating they are harder to control. This is one of the reasons I QT plants Some like them, most don't. I didn't mind when I had inhabitants that ate them and helped curb them. They can damage filters by getting into the impeller area tho and things like that. Same with MTS & Rams.
