Gonna be a daddy, but what kind of daddy?

I found something that looks like an egg deposit in my tank. I am presuming this is snail eggs, but just checking, I have 2 male and 2 female Celestial Pearl Danios and unreasonable hope.

And is anyone able to say if these are Ramshorn or Pond Snail Eggs if they are snail?

Here is a link to a movie that is MUCHclearer than the photo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SU9T9J8z8aI

Probably pond snail, that looks EXACTLY like the globs of pond snail eggs I had in my tank a while back.

From what I have read CPDs scatter their eggs in the substrate or on moss clumps, I'm still waiting for mine to decide to spawn.

For those who were wondering, apparently this was Ramshorn. Glad I got the pond snails out fast enough that they didn't reproduce.
