Looks like waterlogged pellets in my opinion.

Those also aren't Tetras, they're Lambchop Rasbora.

No, they're Cyprinids, such as goldfish, barbs, and Danios. Tetras are Characins, such as pencilfish and hatchetfish.

If they spawn like harlequins then the eggs will be under plant leaves, the female takes a male and turns upside down and lays them under the leaf for the male to fertilize

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.
