    Any idea what laid these eggs? Second time I've seen them. Both times high up near water surface. Only possible fish would be clowns or anthias, but don't look like the pictures online.

    I'd guess snail. What species do you have in your tank?

    I only have trochus, cerith and nassarius. I've seen the trochus spawn, but thought the magic happened in the water column. They spawn and fertilize laid eggs?

    That kind doesn't hatch in the aquarium from what I've seen and read. They just get eaten.

    Hmm, then how did @scuzy get thousands of mini cerith in his tank (see other Cerith snail thread)? I think I'll remove em just in case. Thanks guys.
