They are osmocote pellets. Drove me crazy for months figuring it out in my tanks,
because they do look exactly like eggs with an embryo. drop a few pellets in
a glass of water and watch 'em grow into 'eggs'. I finally figured it out when
i read the osmocote box which describes how the pellets work.
