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.

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)

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.
