 These  do  not  look  like  eggs  to  me.  They  could  be  gizzard  stones  if  you  saw  a  fish  actually  pass  this.

 Before  I  crushed  2/3  eggs  even  I  thought  they  are  small  stones  of  my  ADA  power  sand.  The  shell  is  thick  and  gives  out  white  powder  like  thing  if  bursted.

 Eggs  are  usually  uniform  in  shape  and  size,  that  is  the  reason  I  believe  its  not  an  egg.  Could  it  be  something  mixed  in  fish  food  that  did  not  get  digested  by  the  fish?   If  its  not  an  egg  and  if  its  not  a  gizzard  stone  then  I  have  no  clue  what  it  could  be.

 Just  when  I  thought  I  had  found  enough  eggs...  On  careful  inspection  found  few  more.
 
 The  eggs  in  the  first  row  are  the  ones  I  posted  earlier.
 
 The  last  row  shows  some  really  big  eggs,  irregular  in  shape.  The  extreme  right  hand  side  corner  egg  looks  hatched/crushed.
 
 Eggs  were  found  deep  in  the  substrate.

 Hi  Pio,
 
 Going  by  the  size  and  shape  of  the  eggs  I  found  today  in  the  tank,  I  think  the  eggs  gradually  develop  in  size.

 Those  are  not  eggs  at  all.  They  are  are  small  particles  of  pumice  stone  .  Sometimes  found  in  river  sand  and  also  used  in  the  aquatic  plant  farms  in  the  substrate  and  a  few  grains  come  clinging  to  the  plant  roots.
 
 What  substrate  do  you  have  ?
 Have  you  ever  had  real  live  plants  in  the  tank  ?

 I  have  ADA  power  sand  and  Amazonia.  It  is  a  fully  planted  tank.  Highly  doubt  it  came  with  any  plants.All  plants  were  of  good  quality  and  without  any  roots,  ordered  from  sreepadma.  
 
 Also,  small  particles  of  pumice  stone  wont  give  out  white  powder  like  substance  when  the  shell  is  ripped  open.  If  I  drop  this  stuff  on  a  hard  surface  there  is  no  sharp  sound  as  any  particle  of  stone  would  make.
 
 One  of  those  is  cut  open  and  the  small  white  spots  is  the  powder  like  stuff  from  inside.
