I vote for SAE too. But check the barbells, one set it's a SAE, 2 sets it's a flying fox.

Same here. I buy my fish as pets. When they breed, however, I don't have the space to keep them all and I have sold the fry and juveniles before. But I keep my adults.

Definitely not apple snail eggs. But it may be nerite snail eggs if you have any of those. It would help if you would list the occupants of your tank.

I believe white clouds could well eat the babies. They are pretty small and vulnerable after a molt when they BTW will cannibalize each other anyway. But if you add some RCS shrimp to the tank that...
