Thanks so much for the replies! Yes, I do have two Nerite snails, Jim and Dwight . I too read that they only breed in brackish water. Although if they will lay infertile eggs then that could be it.
The plants I got did have a couple of the small pond snails, which I removed. I tried to remove all of the eggs too, which were like a clear gel. I'm sure I didn't get all of them though since I've seen 4 snails out and about. That's what made me think they might be the babies.
I will definitely keep an eye on the water parameters!
Either way I'll try to update this thread with any new info.

Just read something very interesting on nerite snails. They do lay eggs quite often even in fresh water but the eggs will reach larva stage but will not hatch in fresh water. From the looks of what you are showing on the filter and intake these are defiantly nerite snail eggs that will never hatch.

JIM laying eggs???? You better rename the snail. nerite snails are not Asexual. But once mature the female will continue to lay eggs. Kind of like a chicken. SOOOOOO JIM???

Please keep that name! I just imagine you spotting a load of eggs in the tank and being like "Dammit Jim!"

You three are incorrigible. I once had a dog I named Max and the name stuck right up until the day he had puppy's. I changed her name to Maxine, But My Mom, and Dad always referred to her, when I was around as Max. They did have a smile on their faces though.
