Hmmm... It's not a very clear picture... hard to guess! Platy are live-bearers (no eggs), Tetra are egg-scatterers (no sticky eggs), shrimp carry their eggs around with them, so they're all out! Catfish could be a contender, though! What type of catfish do you have, Cories? Also. . .do you have any plants or snails in the tank?

Cant really see anything in the photo other than a crescent shaped object. My guess would be snail eggs. It doesnt look like cory eggs.

If you have pond snails then that's what I'm going to go with, too - the eggs will be like jelly . . . and you'll be seeing loads more where they came from!
