Those aren't mystery snail eggs. They need a male and female, and also have these weird orange eggs sacs that are about an inch and a half long and are above the waterline, as the eggs can drownOneLittleBubble said:Its probably the mystery snail eggs then
yupOneLittleBubble said:So basically she got some pest snails in the tank somewhere
Here is the tank. Don't judge. It's been a busy month. Maintenance dat today so the filter is missing and algae galore.FriarThomasIII said:@margeratmurphy55 could you show us your full tank, and if you see any snails? pond snails can also breed without a mate too.
I'm really not sure. Unfortunately it was a fish I got when I just got back into the hobby and was a bit overzealous. I'm thinking I will donate it to my lfs because I don't have the adequate space to provide a school.FriarThomasIII said:What kind of tetra is that? And most tetra need to be in schools of about 5 to be happy and sound. And i'm guessing it's pond/ramshorn snails.
Yes you are so right! On both of those things. Thanks for the ID. Gonna surrender it to my lfs so it can go to someone who can provide a schoolKatarina said:Seems like Diamond Tetra to me ... I just bought the same ones today. And you are right they need 5 or more
They are beautiful fish! But they look their best in school and they also probably feel more safe if their school. So good on you trying to provide better home for itMargaretMurphy55 said:Yes you are so right! On both of those things. Thanks for the ID.

I have a glass cover on it, but a little bit of the back is exposed, so it very well could be. I hope not! That gives me the creeps just thinking about it...Goldiemom said:Well, I hope it's not what I am experiencing but the slimy part looks like the midge fly eggs that laid in my tank. If you start seeing bloodworms you'll know what you have. Especially with your tank being open. Have you noticed any small insects flying around your tank? They are attracted to light.
And no insects in sight... hopefully I'm in the clear lolMargaretMurphy55 said:I have a glass cover on it, but a little bit of the back is exposed, so it very well could be. I hope not! That gives me the creeps just thinking about it...
