What Are These Eggs? Snail?

MissCap

I found these eggs all over my 55 gallon tank today. I also noticed what looked like two of my nerite snails mating a couple of days ago and today. I know the eggs won’t make it in freshwater. I have attached a picture of the white spots. These are my other fish:

Ghost shrimp
Glo tetra
Platy (obviously not them)
Male molly
Harlequin rasbora
KhulI loach

Any ideas if who’s eggs? I was gone all day today so I have no clue.

Ok. I was thinking the same but had never seen them before. I was wondering how they ended up everywhere. Float through the water? Will they eventually go away?

No, you would have to remove them.

The snails lay them everywhere... literally.
Eventually they dissolve on their own, but it takes a long time. If you want to get rid of them because they are unsightly, id remkve them by hand

Ok. It isn’t too bad. Only a couple ended up on the glass. I think I only have one female zebra. One male zebra and one male tiger. They were both on top of the female last night. Hopefully no more eggs for a while. I have had these guys for 6 months too and these are the first eggs.
