Fluff that attaches to glass and other surfaces

I have these fluffy little things all over the glass and few surfaces in my tank. I think what ever it was hitch hiked on a plant I purchased. I noted them on the glass just after I put new plants in a fishless tank with other plants. I scraped the glass and I didn't see anymore for 1-2 weeks. Tonight I was watching the 6 Lemon Tetras, that I purchased a week ago I have and noted these things were back on the glass. I saw pictures of Hydras and it doesn't look like that. I've seen pictures of snail eggs and they look more like that. But really to me it looks like little dandilion fluff. They attach by a small stem and float in the currents.

I can clean them off with my gravel vac and they held pretty tight.

Any idea what they might be?

I hope this is a better picture. I just have a point and click compact digital camera and the macro isn't the greatest.

Sorry to bump my own thread so much.

I believe I know what it is now. I've never had snails ever nor purchased them. But I found a small brown shell snail in my 29 gallon tank. So I suspect it was snail eggs which was the other possibility and I was hoping it wasn't that. So I'm now preparing for the incoming of snails.

So I guess on another note, can I do something to kill the snail eggs without harming my Tetras? Or is the best way to "bait" them once I see more?
