What the heck is that??

I was taking pictures of my tank tonight and noticed these funny little things on my pennywort. I'm guessing they're eggs of some kind. Any ideas??

TIA for your help.

Thanks for the quick replies! Next question: Are pond snails bad?

Well they dont look pretty but they are a good clean up crew. They don't harm plants or animals.

I dig 'em. They'll make a fine addition to your tank.

just watch out because they reproduce fast and can overrun a tank if left unchecked.
