Question Identify this please.

I have found this stuff in 2 places in my tank. Not sure if it is from the CFB's or the Snails in there or if it is just an algae/bacteria. Any input is appreciated.

Definitely eggs...but...they don't look like pond snail or apple snail eggs. What snails do you have?

Are the CFB's the only fish you've got in the tank?
That does not look like snail eggs to me.

I agree -- pond snail eggs are smaller and in rounder blobs of slime. They do strike me as snail eggs of some sort though.

Plants are gone, but my 33gal and I are back after a long hiatus.

There is no activity around the eggs ?
For giggles, You could pick up a small , inexpensive breeder basket, cut the leave off and keep an eye on it to see what happens...
