Crud: Eggs but I don't know of What!

While I was pruning my plants I found a cluster of eggs on a leaf. I'm not sure of what though! I'm thinking it's my white clouds but it also may be snails. Anyone can help me ID?

What do pond snail eggs look like?

Some of the eggs are orangish the rest are white or clear. The eggs are about .75mm across and round.

There are about 12 or so of them clustered together around a stem.

Yah, got my camera working (finally). I don't have a macro lens but i'll do my best. Pics in about 10 minutes.
I remember pond snail eggs being pretty huge and gross so I don't think it's that.

EDIT: It might not be my clouds either as they bred last week and sadly none made it.

Yes pond snails lay like a sac with little eggs in it, so that rules those out

Otocinclus Sp., Mountain Minnows, neon tetras. That's it.
As for snails I've seen a few MTS but I know that MTS are live bearing snails; also pond snails (maybe 2).

Otocinclus most likely. they are the only ones i think off hand that are sticky egg layers.

OMG that would be amazing, supposedly otos are very hard to breed in captivity
