So i just found these yellow eggs

coolio3991

I was looking in my tank and I found some yellow eggs on my cambomba. well idk if they are eggs. But I need to know what these are before I gently put them back in my tank.

I have zebra danios, black mollies, ember tetras and neon tetras. I also have neocaradena shrimp and some rams horn snails.
I also just found these which look like tetra eggs on the glass. But I read they dont breed in community tanks.

They look like shrimp eggs, unless you have a tumbler to turn them you may as well discard then.
Can you put them on a saucer and take another picture for me to confirm they are eggs

I cant do it my camera wont take a better picture than that. So what if I put them in a brine shrimp hatchery with an air pump with it down low. Would that help. Or are they just sol I really dont want it to be shrimp eggs honestly. I'm trying to raise my shrimp population and have yet to see it happen. I have 11 shrimp I think most are females.

Yes that would work but first you need to separate each one, just use two sharp implements to do this, it csn be tricky first time but you can only do your best
If any have fur around them discard that one it won't hatch, you can put 1droplet of methylene blue in with them to stop the furing

Hydrogen Peroxide should work if you dont have methylene blue if I remember correctly

Thank you I will get it set up today. I will definitely look at em and toss the fuzzy ones.
