Eggs ID Help

Hi, I was wondering if someone can help me identify these eggs, they appeared on some Java fern leaves in my nano, my best guess is that they're planorbis' but not sure. They are in a transparent bubble and look yellow-ish

Hope the pics look clear enough











Thanks in advance

common pond snail eggs... from my experience with them they are good snails... usually considered pest snials.. they dont usually eat plants only dead plant materials and algea.. i have a few in my 55g.. i am hoping for an outbreak soon i have a ton of algea everywhere...

Thanks for the quick responses, you guys are great.

FishNewb, I will let some of them hatch, they could help me eliminate some algae also, as the nano is "new" I have some algae, it's amazing the recently introduced shrimp look green-ish already, lol.

Regards
