What are these eggs??

I noticed these eggs in my tank 2 days ago, took pics of them, then about 10 minutes later they we're all gobbled up. My ADF's have been mating....could these be their eggs?? Just curious..

hi
they look like corydora eggs to me.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

do you think you'll try and keep some next time,
i'm guessing that if she's now in the mood,you're going to get some more.

yes you should be ok,you can remove them either by finger like gently
roll them onto a leaf,or using a razor blade scrape them off.
