Help Required Can you Identify These

Tropical aquarium

These have just appeared on my thermometer and a few places in tank.
Hard to touch but can be removed.

Not sure if they are baby snails or something else.

they look like nerite snail eggs to me, if u have nerite snails they will often lay eggs but they are incapable of hatching in freshwater

They look almost like limpets. Do they move at all or are they stationary?

If they move - Limpets

If they don't and you have nerite snails - Nerite eggs
