    Those don't look like neon tetra eggs as typically neon tetras will have a clear droplet like layer surrounding the cream colored embryo. However the picture is far away so it does make it hard to tell if they are eggs that just seem to be clustered. Do you have any other fish or snails in the tank?

    It could be a clutch that fell into the water but I'm not too sure. Normally they would be a more pinky color.

    the tank has: 4 neon tetras, 1 cory catfish, and 1 nerite snail.

    no new fish or snails have been introduced in months

    Maybe could it be leftover food?
