    so I was just watching my fish swim around when I noticed these small dome shaped things on the fake log. They look like fish eggs but I’m not sure can anyone identify them?

    All good. Do you have any nerite snails in the tank? Or maybe cory cats?

    Not cory eggs because cory eggs are perfectly round. I suspect nerite eggs but if there are no nerites possible loach or GBR ? I've never seen their eggs so wouldn't know them it I saw them.

    Mystery solved :D

    I have a single nerite snail that has been on that log a lot lately but I only have one. Do they lay infertile eggs? I also have three Cory cats.

    They will lay eggs but they won't hatch in fresh water.

    If I move the log to a saltwater tank will they hatch?

    Is it too late to get a male to fertilize the snail eggs? I kinda want some baby snails and I need another snail anyways.
