I found some eggs in my thirty gallon two days ago and didn't know that they were. They were very well stuck to the glass and were white and that sometimes means that they aren't fertilized any ideas? I have two goby species in the tank currently that I believe are the parents. Because they haven't ever bred before I think they don't really know what they're doing. The species are Stiphodon Semoni and a Rhinogobius that I believe is 'zhou' not sure if that is a valid name but they were labeled as white cheeked gobies. Under the thread New white cheeked gobies there are some pictures of them and in the thread Stiphodon Atropurpureus. The Stiphodon were later identified as semoni. The eggs are shown below and these are just the bulk of them there is about 20 or so and they are .5-1mm in size. the size and how they are fashioned to the side of the tank makes me believe that these should be the gobies

No pic. A list the species in the tank would help. Any cories?

No cories and there are Carnegiella strigata(2), Nematobrycon palmeri(2 male), Puntius titteya (1 female, 3 males), The gobies mentioned above with two females and one male for the S. semoni and two males and one female for the rhinogobius. There is also one Crossocheilus langei (Siamese algae eater) and one Acantopsis dialuzona.

The ph is a little under 7 and I think it is about 6.7 or 6.8

 

My other tanks are Celestichthys margaritatus and Tanichthys albonubes I don't know haw many but I think its about four to six of each and they breed a little bit so some survive and there will hopefully be some fry soon. That is a planted tank and the floating water lettuce has long roots that the fry hide in. 10 gallon

Two German blue rams in a 15 gallon with anubias some water lettuce, sand half and pebbles half. Four or five Neocardina sub adults breed from my four adults in the small tank

A dwarf gourami in a 2.5 with 4 Neocardina davidi 'sakura' or 'orange' fully grown

I'm not up on breeding gobies but they look a lot like nerite snail eggs to me if you've got any of those?

Snails & cories are always my first thought for mystery eggs. I have had rhinogobius lay eggs on glass once(not typical) but they didn't look like that.

I have some snail but I don't know what type they are. They aren't ram horns. Yes I looked them up and they are olive nerite snail eggs. I just wish they would actually hatch, sadly they only hatch in brackish water. I now have to clean them all off when I get home and disappointed that it wasn't fish eggs.
