Do you also have snails in this tank? They look like snail eggs to me but could be cory eggs. It is really hard to tell but they look a bit too small to be cory eggs. Do they look like they are in a gel looking substance?

I have never seen corydoras' eggs, but they do look like snail eggs to me too...

I do have a bunch of snails in the tank bladder nerite and trumpet. Looks a little like gel to me. My wife noticed them I thought they might be snail eggs but they definitely don’t look like nerite eggs

They're snails hon, most Cory's lay eggs on glass , these are probably eggs from the snails that were in the tank where you got your plants.

Those based on your stock, those are bladder snail eggs. None of your fish lay eggs in a gel. MTS give live birth, and nerites also don't lay eggs in gel. The only other possibility would be ramshorn snail eggs, but since you don't have any that would be quite a feat lol. Pond/bladder snails usually lay eggs in gel at the base of a plant or rock, so this is an unusual location but obviously fine.

+1 to the bladder snails, you can actually see the culprit on the leaf above the eggs. Rhobbs, do yourself a favor and discard those eggs unless you want more snails lol.
