Snail eggs that arent eggs

Yesterday i watched my mystery snail move around about 6 white round things. Theyre about an inch or 2 under the water so I dont believe they are eggs. She stuck them to the side of the tank, then gathered them all and stuck them to the bottom of a betta hammock (plastic leaf). The bettas were very interested. I just want to make sure it wont hurt my tank and what are they? Cant find it anywhere on google. Thanks!

Those look like Mystery snail eggs under water. Which would mean they drowned.

If you look under the hood, or the inside rim, are there more eggs? Pink, peachy or white, cream color.

No more eggs

Thanks for your reply. I dont see anymore anywhere today. When I got home last night there was only 1 left floating around. I have a snail breeder friend and he didnt think they were eggs because he said it should be a big cluster. Your opinion makes me feel better in that hopefully my fish are safe. I couldnt find anything on google except eggs or poop so it makes sense.

If it is a young snail, a first or second clutch they can lay a small amount.

Is it young?

Yes. I've only had her about a month and she has gotten a lot bigger.
