They are eggs. Nerite snail eggs, to be exact. They won't hatch in freshwater, so they just stay there, looking unsightly.

Ah makes sense! I assumed nerites didn't even produce eggs in freshwater.

My tank is pretty much covered in them. Do you have nerite snails?
Yep I have two nerite snails.

I learned the hard way too. They’re nearly impossible to scrub off. You can use a razor blade on the glass but any decor I have given up trying to get them off! She keeps my tank clean so I just let her do her thing lol
