    Quick Update:

    . . . . I have no clue where the egg mass went and if they hatched I see no signs of babies yet. Hopefully they're doing ok

    likely they were eaten by one of your fish, or blown off the glass and sucked down the filtration system.

    There are no fish in this tank so it was probably the filter

    I have no clue how else to prove they have laid eggs. . . . I took an hour long video of them actually laying the eggs.
