Could these be fish or snail eggs? I have Rummynoses and DG in this tank, but I don't recall their eggs coming in such a form... could they be mystery snail eggs (I have one in the tank) that are just unfertilized?

If the pic is too blurry it appears to be a clearish game with white dots on the inside. Could this be a fungus or algae?

Mystery snail eggs are usually laid above the waterline and resemble a bunch of grapes. If your eggs are laid on a surface, they shouldn't be mystery snail eggs. Did you know that female mystery snails can store sperm?

Are the eggs in a clear jelly like substance? Ramshorns and pond snails lay their eggs in jelly attached to surfaces under water.

They're in a clear, jelly-like substance, yes.

Now that you mention it, I did get a free Malaysian Trumpet Snail along with the Rummynose I released in this tank. I completely forgot about it. Do they release eggs like this as well?

Malaysian Trumpet Snails are live bearing snails....I know, who knew?! (You start with a few and before you know it, there are hundreds!) I have gone down at night and seen them cover the glass on my 37g grow out tank.
