I hope I'm posting in the correct area. I was cleaning out my pond yesterday and came across a few surprises. One being some type of egg. I have a photo and once I figure out how to post it on here I will. In the meantime, I'll give a description. I found several gel like lines, about 1-2" long that had eggs inside. Think about what a line of hot glue would look like but with tiny white eggs in it. I currently have 2 koi and 2 goldfish and possibly some snails (if they lived through the winter, but I haven't seen any in quite some time). I found them when I was cleaning my filtration system and they were all over it. Another thing I discovered when I popped the lid to the filtration system and the UV light water feature I have were hundreds of tiny worms, about 1 cm in length and they were not red (someone suggested blood worms). I live in Southern AZ if that helps.

Welcome to the forum!

Were the gel-like lines attached to hard surfaces? If so, they may be snail eggs. Photos will provide more information.

The little "worms" in the filter are probably insect larvae such as midges or caddisflies. Blood worms are a species of midge (like little flies) but there are many other species.

Hi Robyn
My line of thinking to snails eggs if it isn't that then they have to be toad eggs but I cant think of anything else to he;p you in this until we get to see Photos .
