What the heck is this on my plants?


I have done a bit of searching but still have no idea what is attaching it'self to my DHG, Rotala wallichii, and now my glass. None of my other plants are effected. It started a few weeks ago on my DHG and now i am noticing it on some of my slower growing wallichii leaves and glass. Any idea? Fungus, mold???


Thanks in advance!

If I had to guess, I'd say snail eggs or molding food.
