Bubble nests....

Sorry guys I know I'm blowing up the threads.... I just have some many questions and need so much advice lol.

When I got home this afternoon a stringy, bubbly mess seems to be hanging from my filter and on part of my driftwood, would that be a nest? Also which fish/snail would likely to make it?

That's the best picture I could get of it.... The one on the filter moves too much to get a picture of due to the bubble wall water current.

The stuff sticking to my filter looks stringy like a (sorry for the gross analogy- I have an English mastiff) but a slinger- or a slobber string... Like the currently moves the little string of bubbles attached to each other....

Is there anything I should do in case it is a nest, I don't want to kill anything trying to grow...

The stinginess itself is the thickness of a hair, the little bubbles are about the size of little sprinkle... It kinda looks like this.

I know it's over stocked. I'm currently working in fixing that. But here's what I have:

2 mystery snails
A "sucker fish"
A Cory cat
A dwarf frog
A gourami
A swordtail
3tiger barbs
10 neon tetras
A Molly

I thinks that's everything....

I've had bubble nests before, and it doesn't look like any of them. Maybe snail eggs?
