Any ideas

Post by Knotted pumpkin » Thu Sep 26, 2019 9:40 am

Good morning

Over the past few days I've noticed these little cream/yellow blobs appear in my tank. The tank is home to dwarf anchor catfish (Hara jerdoni) and a load of snails. Has anyone got a clue as to what these things are?

Thank you in advance.

Maybe snails... Are snail eggs that big? Certainly not jerdoni. :))

They look like they might be the resin case that some slow release fertilisers (like Osmocote (below)) come in.
