Question Identification Help Required........Are these eggs?

Found these on the bottom of the aquarium this morning. 2 round white looking 'eggs', covered with 'mucous' and a small amount of plant attached.

Are these eggs? If yes, who would you think they are from?

Sorry photo isn't the best, don't have the most steady photography hands.



Inhabitants of the tank:

x2 Angels (10cm)
x3 Gourami (8cm)
x3 Dollars (10-12cm)
x2 Clown Loaches (10-12cm)
x4 Corydoras (x2 Peppered (4cm) and VERY FAT and x2 Bronze (2cm) x1 normal, x1 longfin)
x1 Royal Whiptail (20-25cm) Mature Male
x1 Ghost Knife (10cm-12cm)
x1 Long Finned Bristlenose (10cm-12cm)

The three above who are in bold are definitely NOT the eggs owners. So, it does narrow the field a little I s'pose.

I have just noted that the 2 peppered corydoras have been acting a little odd. They are both fat however, one is so enormous it appears that at moment it will 'pop'. Think.......balloon bring pricked by a needle.

Now this enormous cory is hiding under the cover of the Java Fern and keeps moving from upright onto its side. No signs of obvious distress however. Breathing appears normal, gills fine, fins fine, no gasping etc.....

Could this be the mystery owner of those 2 lonely little eggs? I know very little regarding the breeding of Corydoras so would appreciate as much advice as possible.
