    I'm curious if anyone can identify these objects. They are about an inch from the waterline on the glass in my "floating garden". They are milky white/clear, about 1/8" diameter. The only things in my tank that aren't live bearers are ghost shrimp, neons, oto cats, and cories. Are they eggs?

    Look like Cory eggs to me.

    Ha, it's funny what you can get to breed when not even trying :)
    We've got 3 corries and never paid attention to their sexes.
    I'm used to breeding live bearers, first time for egg, guess I'm going to have to check out some threads on how to do it properly.

    A temperature drop usually puts 'em in the mood.

    I did some searching overnight on cory breeding but can't find all the answers.
    How soon should the eggs be turning brownish to show they are developing?

    If they're infertile, they'll go opaque or clear in the next 12-24 hours. If they're viable they ought to darken up in the next 2-4 days.

    Ok, I just checked on them, they still seem whitish, but it also seems there may be something inside, almost greenish in color. It's been less than 24 hrs since I noticed them but will keep an eye on them for another day to see if they start to darken up.
