Found these eggs in my tank... what are they?

2124 18
Unfortunatley my camera is horrible and these are the best close-ups I could get:





The only fish in the tank are Black neon tetras, SAEs, and Ottos. Which of these are these eggs most likely to be and how can I help them hatch?

I don't know... I've seen snail eggs plenty of times in my tank and they are always much more "flat". And my snail population has been on a steady decline also. I suppose they could be, but i thought different because these don't look like the snail eggs i've seen before in the tank.

i think it's methylin blue, malachite green kills ich, and most snail, shrimp, and other inverts, and smooth skin fish, tetra, morymids, and catfish. it's serious stuff, i wouldn't be suprised if it kills the eggs.

...what isn't toxic and doesn't cause cancer?

At many places you go to here, you see that these chemicals are "known to the State to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm".
Yes but most of them say "Known to cause cancer in the state of California" which means they only become carcinogenic once they cross the state border :hihi:

I guess you are safe if you don't live in California :hihi:

EDIT: Woops.. beaten to the bad joke by Chrona.
