What the heck is laying these eggs?

Please see my signature line for the inhabitants of my 46 gallon community.

I was really surprised to see the tank walls speckled with lots of little eggs this morning. They are laid like cory eggs would be, individually. They are about cory egg size, yet I have no corys in this tank.

Could any of the species in this tank be laying eggs like this? I'm so confused.

Will try to get a photo when I get home, I was running out the door when I saw them this morning.

How big are the eggs? do they look like your snail eggs? have your snails ever laid eggs? I sometimes just get random dots on my tank and figure out its just dirt.

They're exactly the size of cory eggs. I'm not sure how to tell you what that size is if you've never seen it.

My snails usually lay eggs in clumps not individually, otherwise, I would've assumed it was one of them.
