Been scraping these off my glass almost daily for a few months. I've probably scraped off thousands by now. I assumed they were some kind of sponge but I'm realizing today that they might be nerite eggs?

What are they?

I have a few different species that make it to adulthood regularly, mainly trochus and some mystery snail that I have no idea where it came from. I've never noticed baby nerites hatch/survive but they hide all day and clean at night so it's possible that I just don't see them.

Nerites have a larval stage before they're baby snails, so they've most likely been eaten or sucked up by filtration
