Orange Balls/Eggs ?

Post by BoltonN »

Sorry for a late one, not had the time to check on here recently so just spent the last hour or so reading some of the threads over the past month or so.

Anyways, just had a delivery of plants today and as i was taking the rock wool off i notice some orange ball type things around 10-12 of them. They were found on a large anubias barteri plant and i have no idea what they are ??? Does anyone know or hazard a guess as to what they are ?

They’ve had root tabs to help them grow. Totally threw me the first time I found little yellow balls in my substrate. It’s why I went for soil mixed into the sand this tank!
240L: 6 cherry barbs, 2 honey gourami,
6 Otocinclus, 11 sterbai Cory, 6 standard rummynose, 4 golden rummynose tetra. But don’t quote me on that given how things are going!

57L: Ghost (Betta) & Pumpkin (nerite)

Parameters: gH2, kH1, pH7.6 (tap).

🤣🤣. I’m definitely wondering why the heck they’ve added root tabs to an epiphyte plant though....

Exactly, thing was i had a echinodorus and other root feeders so if found with these it would have made sense, but with an anubias :// ahaha.
