Are these assassin snail eggs...?
I've got a 28gal tank with the following: 1 male dwarf gourami, rummynose tetras, harlequin rasboras, cories, otos, amano shrimp, nerite snails, MTS and one assassin snail. I'm pretty sure these are assassin snail eggs, but I figured I would mention everyone else in case there's another option.
Everything I'm reading says you must have a male and female assassin snail to reproduce, and I only have one, but I've got a bunch of little square eggs on a piece of driftwood and the roots of the anubias I have tied to it. At first I thought they were nerite eggs cause these showed up at the same time my nerites went on a random egg laying spree.. but upon closer inspection these are not the hard, round eggs like my nerite's lay. Are these indeed nerite snail eggs, and if so.. how? I've had the snail for like 2-3 months in my tank without another snail of the same species. Is this something that's likely to keep happening.. and are the eggs even fertile?
