Did a search on here and the grand web and nothing really locked in my mind for confirmation...so what are your thoughts???

Snail...dragonfly... some other mystery creature...lol


Little 300 gallon raised pond...about 10 to 12 goldfish and rosie reds. No frogs... plenty of insects...I'm Sure I got snails but have not seen many in my pond. About three weeks ago added water hynathic all other plants have been native to my yard and pond. Noticed the eggs on my 1 fake pad about 10 days ago and looked today and they have dark little creatures in the eggs moving so guessing they will hatch soon. Any confirmation...if not might move to a small tank to see what hatches.

Many thanks...

Yes pics just taken today...been hot and dry plus being small and above ground I believe it warms quicker than most ponds.

Still got a few plants lagging and the pads have not filled in like I like yet ...hince still having the fake pads from winter for shading and hiding places for the fish

@Nanner I believe those are minnow eggs. The snail eggs that I've seen come in little clumps or clusters. I have seen minnow eggs underneath lily pads and they are usually more spread out like that. The ones with little critters in them were fertilized and the others that are clear are probably unfertilized duds that will end up getting eaten.
