What’s this in my filter?

Hello,

I was cleaning my filter media sponges in my DIY canister filter.

For the first time I saw these eggs type oval things stuck on my sponges...

Can anyone tell me what this is and do they harm the fishes..

Thanks

Do they move? Have any snails or shrimp gotten into the filter?

Yes, when I put the sponges in a bucket..I saw some swimming in the water...most of it was caught or stuck the sponge..

I dont have snails, I have Red Cherry and Yellow Shrimps...I had12, but now most are eaten by Angels and Rainbow Fish

I am not sure if anyone got sucked in the filter, coz they were of 2.5 cms size..
