Looks like snail eggs, but better pix would help(more clear).

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

Does look like snail eggs. If you didn't put any snails in your tank, sometimes they can hitchhike in on plants that are added.

I'll take better pics in awhile.
I took those during a water change and the plant is in the back of the tank. I'll try again in a few.
However, I am thinking ramshorn snail eggs after some research via internet

I found some ramshorns in my tank once. Didn't put them in there myself. Assassin snails took care of them pretty quick. Those ramshorns can multiply with the quickness!

If you want to get rid of some, you can put a piece of lettuce in there at night. When you wake up in the morning they will be on the lettuce. Pick it out and do what you will with them.

If you remove all the eggs you see, the ones you DON'T see will still hatch & give you plenty of snails.
