This morning I discovered a small cluster of yellow eggs at the front of my tank I'm not sure if these are from my shrimp or my apple snail ??

I've read previously females sometimes from the 1st batch if eggs due to inexperience

If the eggs are in the tank then most probably shrimp eggs. Young and inexperienced females usually drop eggs at the beginning with time they learn and carry the eggs full term.

Apple snails lay eggs in a cluster above the water level, usually under the tank hood. The color of fresh apple snails is reddish-pink and turns cream as they mature.

Maybe next time she will be able to keep hold of them!!

I guess it shows my tank and shrimp are 99% ready for breeding
