Eggs? :'O

I did a water change yesterday and these things were NOT there. Then I go over to check on my ramshorn snail and right next to it are a LOT of little yellow ball like things. At first I figured they were poop or something but then I looked closer and thought "Oh crap..."

Also sorry about the quality but my camera is ancient and I'm to broke to get a new one.



If these are ramshorn eggs how can I dispose of them that will kill the babies (that sounds so evil!) but not release them onto my ecosystem in KS.
Btw if you're interested in some ramshorn...I can hook you up for free...

Probably didn't need this but I figured it wouldn't hurt.
Housing
What size is your tank? 5gal
What temperature is your tank? 78F
Does your tank have a filter? not any more I took it out today, the yellow things appeared right afterward like within an hr.
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration?no
Is your tank heated? yes
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? 1 ramshorn snail, who knows how many trumpet snails.

Food
What type of food do you feed your betta fish? NLS I also put a piece of lettuce in for the snail because there is NO betta food left afterward
How often do you feed your betta fish? 2times a day and I put the lettuce in a few days after the previous piece is gone

Maintenance

How often do you perform a water change? weekly, it's cycled
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? 50%
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Prime Conditioner


Thanks. :)

Really? 26 views and no one can even comment?
I really need to know what to do with these things, more appeared today.
I'm trying to move them to a different container but I can't get all of them.

Freeze them or put them in the microwave (or both?) if you want to kill them for sure.

Its hard to tell by the pic.....but I am sure they are not snail eggs-ramshorn eggs are usually laid on the glass or object in the tank in a gel packet and trumpets snail are livebearers and don't lay eggs.....is the Betta a female...if so, it could be eggs from her....no other fish???... I would siphon them out and depose of them....

No the betta is a male...I'm trying to get them all but more keep appearing. :P At least I'm planning on moving the betta soon so he won't be affected, or overrun, with whatever they are...
