Yah, snail eggs or fungus would be my guess. Is it jelly like or fuzzy?

Does it kind of look like a bluish algae type substance? I've had that on my plants before and simply leaving the lights off for a few days cured it.

No, it's more of a clear jelly thing

Does it have little spots in it? If so then it's snail eggs.

Have you seen any snails? That's just like what their eggs look like in my tank.

Hmm.. Ok I'll check it out when I get home. Would it still be snail eggs if I've only had the snails in there for a couple days?
