Do you have any snails or did the plants come outs of a tank that had snails in it??

First, what fish/snails do you have? They look like fish eggs.

What type of fish are in your tank? I've had corydoras lay eggs like that, and there are other species whose eggs look similar. Pest snail eggs usually look nothing like that, so unless you have a much larger breed...

It looks like one or more of your fish has been very busy.

My corydoras leave their eggs on the glass or under leaves, normally where there is higher flow.

Mine usually pick the top of my submerged filter, which has always seemed weird to me.

Fish usually lay eggs where there is water flow so that they don't fungus over and die. Just instinct.

And my corys don't care where they lay their eggs. They just end up stuck to what ever she is close to when she is ready to let them go.

These don't appear to be cory eggs although the shape and size are similar. There are too many of them for a cory to have laid them in a single spawn.

They don't look like cory eggs, too oval and small IMO. If there's some sort of cichlid (rams, angels, etc) I would guess they're the parents. Do you notice any fish in particular guarding them?

Corydoras, while the egg laying seems sporadic, lay eggs in little groups, moving from group to group. Albino cories, like corydoras aneaues have massive clumps. They also go where the water isn't stagnant. Seems random, but not

Looks like rams then, are they guarding?

My best guess then is Ram eggs. Looks like either he or she is in the bottom left of that photo and is keeping an eye on the eggs

My first impulse is to say they look like angelfish eggs then. It's about the right amount and size of a spawn, but. It is a little odd for them to be on the driftwood...

Rams leave them on driftwood, right? That or caves?

Could they be siamese algea eater eggs?
