Unplanned and unsure

I have neon and lemon tetra in my tank with some oto's and a couple of snails. I woke up this morning to discover eggs or at least what I think are eggs attached to my heater and some if my plants.

If these are fish eggs and not snail eggs what can I do to protect the fry.

Would a small bushy plant help for them to hide in.

What do I feed them?

I'm a total novice.

Ok after a little research I'm torn between snail eggs and otocinclus eggs.

It's a pond or bladder snail, I'd say that's a sack of snail eggs.

Ok there are far to many in my tank I have them all over my swords and heater. How do I get rid of them and why aren't my fish eating them.
