Welcome to Fishlore!

If they are fertile, I'm pretty sure they should have a yellowish color. As long as they aren't white, they are fine. The reason they disappeared is because they were eaten. If you really want to raise fry, you need to set up a separate tank to put the eggs in as soon as you see them.

Also, typing in all caps makes it a little hard to read, so please use regular letters.

Hope you enjoy the site!

I'm not really familiar with Piranha breeding, so i'm not sure exactly what they look like. Most fish though will just look like little specs. The eggs with stringy things you are describing sound like fish fry! When they are first hatched, they keep their yolk sac for food for a few days. They just look like eggs with tails and little eyes.
