    Ok well this morning I was looking into my tank and I noticed 2 creamish yellowish small small ovals on a vallsneria leaf and on my drift wood, do they sound like eggs? The only egg layers I have are my harquieln rasboras, kirbs, bn plecos, cory cats and my female betta. It can't be my betta, she wasn't egg bound and her eggs float, my plecos aren't mature enough I think and they lay their eggs in a mound shape

    any ideas? Shawnie, I know youre on, the little thing at the bottom of the page tells me so

    :;laughing I was playing with my profile :anim_35:
    pics would help...i dont think its the bn's they would be guarding them....rule out the betta ...kribs would be protecting also...cories will scatter theirs...

    Interesting. I'm thinking maybe snail eggs. They can come in on your plants. I agree a pic would be helpful.

    the eggs are scattered but i dont have any tetras, i was just wondering because i have some harqulien rasboras but i thought that they lay their eggs in a group under a leaf.

    your OP didnt say they were scattered

    "vallsneria leaf and on my drift wood"

    are you sure they are eggs and not just leftover food decaying?
