I noticed this morning that someone deposited some eggs on the glass over night and am not sure if it was a corydora or neon tetra, they're all in what appears to be a 'C' shaped egg sack.
Should I move the eggs to their own tank? If they're tetra eggs I'd like to try raising some.

Thank you,
Vern

I believe that they are Neon Tetra eggs, although I could be wrong

There is a 50% chance you are right, though

Thanks for insight fanatic, I thought so myself as the Dora still seems quite plump.

You've got a point Joe.

I suppose my main question should be, is there any harm in moving the eggs to another aquarium or would that likely just kill them?

Agree with coradee, those are likely bladder snail eggs.

Snail eggs. Cory eggs do not look like that ( in a sac ) and neither do neon eggs. Do you have pest snails in your tank?
