Help for a newbie, pics included.

I need help. We bought two bettas. Put them in separate bowls. After coming here and reading I discovered that bowls were not the best and bought two 1.5 (I think or their 1 gallon) tanks for each. (This is after one fish decided to jump out. She died two days after jumping out. The first fish is doing great. He's gorgeous. Swimming and having a great time.
We bought another fish, a male this time to replace the one who died. He was doing fine until tonight. I went to feed the fish and noticed he was in the bottom of the tank. Another fish gone. :( I don't know what's going on. And then I saw these things on the plants we have in the tank. What the heck are these? Are they eggs? I googled betta fish eggs and couldn't determine if this is what they were for sure. (And since this was supposed to be a male, I'm thinking no, but hey, who knows?)
Anyway, here are some pics. If anyone has any advice I'd greatly appreciate it!

It could just be air bubbles. Unfortunatly 1 gall. is not enough water for a betta as they are very active, 2+ gallons is the recomended amount I beleive. I think next time you buy a betta you may want to buy from somewhere else.:( Where did you buy your 3 bettas? The fish on it's side I know is very sick it looks like. bettatalk.com has a disease part and if either fish aprear to have the discribed ailment treat as indicated.

If they are real plants then yes, they could be snails. Snails will often hitchhike on plants. Welcome to FishForum.
