Identifying mysterious white cloud (fungus? Eggs?)
I have a small silky white substance appear on the sand section of my Aquascape each week.
I don't think its a fungus I think it's perhaps eggs or something similar.
You can see the list of marine life in the tank in my signature. I googled Cherry Shrimp eggs, Pond Snail eggs etc and nothing looks the same. Perhaps the pond snail eggs are similar but not close enough for me to 100% identify. I've been removing them each week and now I just want to know what it is! This current one I am taking out and putting in another tank to see what develops. I've been scared they are MORE pond snails as I've just spent 2 weeks getting rid of them all but now I'm intrigued!
If anyone has any ideas that would be super!
