Anyone recognize this?

I think it is shrimp eggs... but I'm not entirely sure.

Looks like snails eggs to me. They usually come in clumps and look as if they are covered in gel, most like pond/bladder/Malaysian trumpet/ramshorn snails. The most common asexual snails in the hobby that reproduce quite fast

Shrimp carry their eggs on their bodies until the eggs hatch. ;)

Those are snail eggs. I see them all over my tanks all the time. Probably pond or ramshorn. MTS are livebearing snails.

I'd never seen the before, why I Was curious. I had heard of shrimp dropping their eggs, usually when sick, I was hoping... oh well, I see I'll be scraping that up tomorrow!

If you would please tell me a few things about your Ramhorn snails. I just spotted one in my aquarium. I have dozen nitrite snails that have been in there for about 6 months. I have not added anything to the aquarium since then either. Where did this one come from?
I have only found one so far. It is a bit different from the nitrite snails, shell form, and a lot faster moving, lol , for a snail, well than the nitrites, they are pretty slow movers.
Will the ramshorn eat my plants?
Where did it come from, I'm stumped? I have not added any plants or fish in 6 months. Feed frozen, and flake foods.
In the water change? I do WC twice a week, 50-50 RO & Tap, 75 gallons in a 125 gal aquarium.
It is definitely a ramshorn snail.

Hmm. My best guess for how it got there is it hitchhiked on your plants. Ramshorns are pretty hardy. That's also a pretty large tank, so I don't blame you for missing a baby for 6 months. I can hardly find them in my 29 gal. They don't eat healthy plants, so you don't have to worry about that. They're great algae cleaners, tho. I introduce them to all of my new setups to keep the growth of algae down.
