Eggs!

I have a 50 gallon tank with 1 mystery snail, 1 angel, 6 rainbows and 6 Buenos aries tetras. Just found this eggs. Are they snail or fish and what should I do? (I only have 1 snail, got my plants and snail a week ago).

Don't think they are snail. Probably angel and if only have one. Well.....it takes two to tango. As the saying goes.

(Celebes Rainbows are known to spawn on plant leaves and would not have a large number of eggs.)
You did not mention having any catfish or scavengers besides the snail but the quantity of eggs could be cory catfish.

Lastly, and it's a long shot , are you sure the eggs didn't come with the plant?

Well that just takes the challenge out of it. The Cory not eating them is a good indicator that they were theirs. Next time, be prepared in case they spawn again.

Defintly cory eggs, my cory's did the same thing. They laid eggs on plant leaves and the side of the glass. Got to watch open eggs because once fish find them they will be gone in no time. Good luck next time
