    I moved my tank last night followed by a 90% wc anyways when i went to bed I didn't see anything on the side of the glass and today I was watching a baby assassin mingle with the MTS and I saw this weird looking thing on the glass... I looked up eggs for all the types of fish in my tank (otos, alcino cries, black neons, black skirts, betta) but none of those looks like what I see so I doubt it is eggs... the picture is bad quality as i have to use my tablet for all my pictures...

    Hard to tell in picture, but it looks kinda stringy? Yes?
    Maybe snail poop??
    Just a guess.

    It's hard to make it out, but it's either snail poop or snail eggs. If you have "mating" snails, then the egg scenario is a possibility. :)

    Well thats wat confuses me... I took a bamboo skewer I bought for their veggies and poked it... it is really hard and really on the glass... as for snails I have 3 mystery snails and MTS in there... my assassins don't lay their eggs on this side of the tank (don't know why lol)

    Not sure what it could be, then. Do you have any Driftwood in the tank? If so, sometimes driftwood can leach out similar things. I can't remember what they call it, though.

    The driftwood has been in there for a few months now... I didn't know driftwood leeched anything like that... i need to google it

    I do know that IF it's the driftwood leaching the matter, then it's not harmful. It's a form of bacteria, if I can recall correctly.

    From what I Google it doesn't look like the stuff coming from driftwood... it seems more branch idk here let me see if I can steal mom and dads new camera/camcorder thing xD maybe it can take super close up pics?
