    They do look like some kind of eggs. What are the inhabitants of your tank? Any Nerite Snails?

    they look like nerite snails eggs, have any nerite snails?

    if they are, they wont hatch as nerite snails need a period in salt water.

    That was quick - I do have three nerite snails in there! I assumed that any snail eggs would resemble the egg clutches I have seen from apple snails or smaller snails in the tank.

    Thanks for your help! :lol:
