I got pink eggs

I have pink eggs on my rock in my 29 gallon aquarium. It's either the zebra danios or the corys. I noticed that 2 zebra danios are chasing the rest which I assume are the males. I also noticed that a few of the danios are quite plump. What should I do?

Probably corys danios scatter their eggs in plants. Corys stick them to things.

Oh...is there anything I should do? I kind of dount it's the corys. I had 1 cory in there for 1 month and 2 in there for only 2 days.

You could take the rock out and put it in another tank to see what hatches out are they individual eggs or a gelatineous(sp) glob like snail eggs? Look around the glass close to the edges and corners.corys like to lay in places like that as well as rocks and plants.

I don't want to take the rock out because I have a few guppy fry that hide there. The eggs are individual. Could corys breed that fast? I mean, they were only there for 2 days!

Yep they could in fact that's the way to get them to breed sometimes. Add a couple to shake up the group

Ok. I think my zebra danios laid eggs. My females are noticably less plump. So what color are zebra danio's eggs?

Their kind of white but would be scattered everywhere.

My yellow danio (albino zebra.. whatever heh) eggs are clear/white... So.. zebra ones are probably the same

Actually, I read that corys' eggs are white. So could there be a snail in there?

Snail eggs look like a glob of clear jelly. Are they still there? Most eggs hatch in three to four days, so two more days and we see what they turn out to be

They didn't hatch yet....I think. It's hard to see the eggs because they're between a crack in the rock.

4 days and still no eggs! I'm starting to think that they're not eggs...but they sure look like eggs. Do you think it'd be snail eggs? I haven't seen any snails in there though...

Maybe it's snails? I saw some baby snail crawling around. I still see the pink eggs. Though I see less. I took a billion pictures but it's all blurred and you can hardly see them. Do you still want me to post the picts?
