    Oto Eggs - Semi Urgent.

    Hi, I've just noticed some small white oval eggs in my 70L DIY tank. They are on leaves, in small lines or groups of 3 or 4. The only thing in the tank are 3 oto's, 7 amanos and 3 nertite snails. Have my oto's bread? I presume the amano's will eat the eggs very soon unless I move them. I...
