Ditto on the "no"s
Rasboras are egg scatterers, so wouldn't be in that nice sack
All the corydoras eggs I've seen have been whiter and in groups/clusters but individually stuck to leaves or glass. Not at all like the ones floating in gelatinous fluid as pictured
Nerite eggs are even whiter and look like someone dipped a toothpick in white-out and dabbed it on rocks. Not nerite eggs.
That leaves pond snails... I haven't seen pond snail eggs in person, but your pics do look similar to google pics of pond snail eggs. That or something that hitchhiked in since those are newer plants... How new are they?

They definitely look like Google's pond snail egg pictures. I don't think it's new hitchhikers. I'd have seen whatever laid them by now. Last plants were added 2 weeks ago. Not saying I didn't get new hitchhikers but I'd have seen something big enough to lay eggs at this point. Unless, of course, I got more pond snails.
Thanks!

Platies - no
Red Cherry Shrimp - no
Harelquin Rasboras - no
Corydoras - no
Nerite Snails - no
Pond Snails - likely
Random new hitchhiker - possible but unlikely

I meant the eggs themselves possibly "hitchhiked" in, not the critter who laid them I think some eggs take 2-4 weeks to hatch. I agree most likely pond snail eggs though

Agree with everyone else. Not corydoras. Not nerite. Probably pond snails.
