Angel or cory eggs?

I saw some scatterred eggs today when I got home in my 29T. There is only one angel in there, a nice size silver zebra. There is no sign of a tube on her. There is 3 cory cats in the tank. Could they be catfish eggs? There is 5 eggs on the glass, about 1/3 from the top of the tank, and a couple on some small leaves of a plastic plant. I have seen angelfish eggs before, always in a group.

I think they might be angel eggs. I put a slate in there up against the glass and she started pecking at it. Looks like I'm gonna have to find her a boyfriend.

I'd be confident these are cory eggs. Corydoras spawn on the underside of leaves (when available) and on the glass, and there will be deposits of eggs in several places. At least, that has been my experience with corys. I have also spawned angels, and it takes a pair (never heard of a female laying eggs with no male present, but not saying it can't happen, just skeptical) and in my case they were laid on t5he side of a piece of standing bogwood in a cluster, and the female fanned them, etc. I suspect yours are from the corys. Have you not noticed spawning activity, with two of them swimming around side by side, one nudging the other, tickling with barbels, etc.?

I have had a female angel lay eggs alone. Fanned them till they turned white. By the morning they were gone.

I also have a lone female angel who has laid eggs numerous times. In fact she was laying tonight. But I agree with Byron that those are almost certainly cory eggs. They tend to place them all over the tank (under leaves and on the glass).
