Otocinclus Eggs? Help!

I just discovered these green eggs in my freshwater tank. I only have Otocinclus and cherry shrimps in here, so I am wondering if these are Oto eggs?

I put them in the blue net for the time being because I saw a bit cherry shrimp trying to eat them.

I also have no snails that I know of, and theres no film around the eggs like the pictures of snail eggs.

Thank you!

Shrimp carry their eggs until they hatch. You may have gotten lucky enough to have otos try to breed in your tank.

Ottos are just starting to be bred in tanks and lay their eggs like Cories in clumps of 3/4. Considering the colour I tjinknits more likely one of his shrimp dropped her eggs
