Have i got eggs?

I'm cycling a new tank and i've just noticed this peculiar looking thing.

In the tank there has previously been 3 german rams (dead), 3 mollies and a pleco.

I think they are pleco eggs but i am not sure.

What do you think, i need advice too...

There are a number of moulds and other things that have spores in air always, which means they enter water anywhere, and multiply if conditions are right for them. That's how some algaes get in as well, and bacteria, viruses, etc. Water is not nearly as 'empty' as it looks.
