Snail eggs or fish eggs???

I was cleaning my tank the other day and found pinkish round eggs on the glass of my tank right above the water line...not sure if they were actually supposed to be in the water or not because i don't keep the water level constantly full. I'm trying to figure out what is laying them. I have 4 snails, 6 tiger barbs, and 5 zebra danios...not sure which one layed them.

Your description sounds like snail eggs to me. I'm assuming they're mystery or apple snails?

I am positive that those are snail eegs. Reason why; barbs and danios are egg scatterers, and so their eggs would be found in the gravel.

Yep, they're snail eggs. I'm guessing Mystery snail. Are your snails mystery snails?
