Trumpet snails (MTS) are livebearers so you will not see any eggs from them just lots of little snails.

Not sure about snails but for fish ,, white eggs are those that have fungused and are not viable, while brownish eggs are fertilized eggs that have not fungused. Got any cory's? they often lay eggs on anything handy.

No Cory eggs in that tank; they're confined to the 55&45g only Its def not fungus; it sorta looks a lot like shrimp eggs just white and the others are brown.

I'll just wait & see what will develop

I think they start out looking whitish and get more color as the snails inside grow.
