As promised here are some egg spawns.

The first picture is one spawn from about 10 days ago. As you can see they have started to change to a more oval shape.
The second and third picture of one tiny spawn and one massive spawn around 150 eggs! compared to 11! are about 3 days old.

I will start taking pictures of them everyday so we can track there progress.

Are those eggs from the eastern newts?I had thought they lay the eggs in plants and cover them individually.Those look like Ambystoma eggs.I have seen that mating dance a few times,it's very cool.

They're not Eastern newt eggs, they look like frog eggs to me?
