    I was really surprised to see the community tank walls speckled with lots of little eggs this morning. They are laid like cory eggs would be, individually. They are about cory egg size, yet I have no corys in this tank.

    Could any of the species in this tank be laying eggs like this? I'm so confused. :confused:

    This is what's in the tank:

    WCMM, gold inca snails, ghost, bamboo & amano shrimp, kuhli loaches, rummynose & ember tetras, flame gourami

    Will try to get a photo when I get home, I was running out the door when I saw them this morning.

    Yep! It's the Kuhlis, unless you have Otos in the tank. Even if I hadn't bred them before I could easily deduce the eggs belonged to the Kuhlis because your snails lay egg clutches, Amano shrimp don't breed in freshwater, ghost/bamboo shrimp carry their eggs, tetras are egg scatterers, WCMM are egg scatterers, and the gourami is a bubble nester. So the only possibility is the Kuhli.

    If I could be a kuhli baby grandma, I would've achieved my ultimate goal in life and could die in my sleep peacefully and with no regrets....... :;hp

    I'm going to take the same stance I always do. I let nature take its course. That way, I don't get inundated by fry of any kind and I don't get stressed out by the whole "OMG, what do I do!!!" thing when you see that you have eggs.

    Some sneaky pete went around the tank walls over the weekend and pretty much cleaned everything off..... I'm thinking it was that piggy gourami of mine. :rolleyes:
