Help identifying these please

Hello

Just found these on my fry tank.
Not sure if it's eggs or some random algae thing?

The photos aren't the best but it's like a load of small clearish balls in one big ball! All I have in there are 7 Molly fry, 4 RCS and a ra horn snail.

It's stuck to the glass next to the snail in the pic.

Any ideas??

looks like snail eggs, but hard to tell from photo. I know shrimp carry their eggs

In case you care....you will end up with hundreds of snails in no time, they will take over your tank if you don't have something to eat them

Well I only have one snail in there so will they need to be fertilised before? Unless she had a one night stand that took off somewhere lol

Ramshorn can self fertilize, they can also be both male and female. Those eggs are fertile.

When you have more than one ramshorn snail they will mate and exchange genes with others of their species. Pond snails do this as well. It's just that they don't have to in order to reproduce.

Yeah I put some snails in my tank and I started getting those EVERYWHERE! It got annoying but I'm sure it's nutritious for your fish!
