I woke up to these one morning a couple days ago. Didnt see any spawining behavior beforehand. They look a bit white to me and I was wondering what you fine folks thought. They are from one of my three big fancies, not sure which.

They look like they went bad to me. Usually I wait 24 hours after they lay the eggs then remove them. They can quickly foul the water. But if I don't manage to get them all, they turn this color and soon form some fuzzies.

From my experience you usually are only able to see the bad ones when they turn white and the majority of the good one go unnoticed until they hatch. If any are fertilized you probably just cant see them.

Eggs hatch around 100hrs after fertilization. Usually between day 2 and 3 you see little black eye specks in the eggs. If you don't see them then the high protein in the egg and milt will feed fungus and it will spread to the surrounding eggs.
