Exclamation Are these eggs??

I know this must be a newb question, but I came home from work today and I found these all over my red ozelot. I'm thinking they must be eggs as both of my angels are hovering nearby. Has anyone seen this before? If they are eggs, should I be putting them in a breeding tank. (I don't have one set up at the present time). I have never had a fish lay eggs in my tank before so...I have no idea what to do. Would appreciate any advice.
Sorry about the quality of the photo.

They look white. If they were fertilized, how long until they hatch?

Congradulations. Those are angel fish eggs and it looks like you have a nice set of breeders from the number. So angelfish eggs. I have been spending some time at an angelfish forum (http://www.angelfish.net/yabbse/index.php) as of late trying how to raise them myself. So far I have gathered the eggs and placed them in a medium jar in a bare bottom 5.5 AGA(you can just trim the leaf). I added lots of methylene blue to help prevent fungus. They hatch in 2-3 days into 'wigglers' ~5 days after that they become free swiming. This is where I am having problems. I think you need to feed 3-4 times a day with baby brine shrimp and do large (>50% water changes daily). I have a 3 day old batch going right now so I can let you know how it turns out.

Good Luck!

Moved to Tucson.

Just as a note, I've never seen golden angel eggs. If they are opaque they are infertile. But mine are clear and pretty colorless.

They look just like the ones my angels have had- they're fertile. Solid white ones are unfertilized, and should be removed before the fungus over.
Wow, good luck! There's plenty of info on how to raise angel fry on this forum, but you should also check out the articles in the most recent issue of Tropical Fish magazine (or was it Aquarium Fish? It's the one with two angel fish on the cover).
