Here it is. These things look like a hardened version of the cory eggs that I see on a regular basis. Although the Cory Eggs are 9 out of 10 times all on the glass. I wasn't sure what they could be so I just monitored them. They seem to have spread (or developed) on all 3 pieces of driftwood now...

That's exactly what they look like. I do have a Tiger Nerite Snail and there were several snail hitch-hikers on some plants a few months back but they seem to have disappeared...

It's the tiger snails laying eggs. They won't hatch as I think they need brackish or salt water for that.... I suppose that you could put a driftwood piece in the tank, get some snail eggs, transfer it to a properly setup tank and get your own snails.

.... sounds like another project in the works. My daughter would like the idea, she already asked if we could do something with the eggs.

That'd be cool. Let us know how that goes and how you accomplish it. Good Luck

Is there anyone that seconds the Snail Egg theory ?

On another Note, I recently received some Amazon Frogbit in the Mail. A small little bunch of it and it is now in the tank. I have to say, It looks a little smaller in person than what I expected. The only issue is keeping it to one side of the tank and of course keeping it from getting trapped behind the Filter.

JDM, didn't you devise some way to keep your duckweed from traveling accross the tank?

Yah, little tiny leashes.

I settled on the sparse is better. Too many issues with some of what I tried. Some divider across the tank floating in the water would be best. With frogbit being larger than duckweed this would be easier to do. Air hose would work well.

Now I dropped my water level and decided to just keep the weed thinned out more, let it roam. I use a canister though so there isn't much for it to get hung up on.

The primary reason I got it was to provide some cheap ammonia sink while adding a bunch of new fish, I didn't want another nitrite spike. It worked.

Leashes !

I have a small sheet of Acrylic that I was thinking of taking to a Glass cutter and have it Cut to fit the T-bar and then acquire some acrylic silicone and Fix it to the recessed portion under the T-bar and have the smooth beveled edge hanging down into the water. I would do this when the water level was low enough to not interfere with this process or the process not interfere with the Quality of tank water.

This was one idea though. I also thought about using Air line like you suggested but was unsure of the physical appearance of it as well as how I would keep the Air line in place...

Before my Frogbit filled out, the small group I had just wandered around my tank. The spiraling drove me insane. I actually ended up just bunching it together where I wanted it, sort of lassoed the group with a cotton thread and tied a lead to something, for me I tied it to the top my canisters intake. I'm sure you could use fishing line or the like as well.
