Drftwood and plants with eggs?

Started to observe white dots, like eggs in all my driftwood and plants. They look like sesame seeds.

Are these from the Nerite snails? Y also have Sterbai corys... The rest ate fish that I'm sure are not spawning.

I don't ha a picture right now...

Nerite snails will lay eggs from time to time, but the eggs will not hatch.

Yep, nerite snails lay little white dot eggs everywhere even in freshwater.

Corys lay white eggs also but they are usually grouped together and there are usually a lot of them, like dozens. They are bigger than nerite eggs which are about the size of the ball on a ballpoint pen and pure white.

Nerite snails for sure. Not harmful, and won't turn into anything. Pain to remove. Razor works well on glass. I have a single Nerite snail and am lucky enough to not have any eggs, but I know this is common.
