Help with Egg ID

A few nights ago, I noticed a cluster of strange eggs in my tank. The eggs were grouped together in a pencil-like formation (although somewhat thinner and shorter, maybe 4" long) on one of my plastic plants. The individual eggs were very tiny and were a dark yellow color (perhaps greenish-yellow).

Hopefully, someone here can help me identify these. I have 4 guppies (obviously not responsible), 7 cardinal tetras, 3 kuhlis and 4 clowns. Also, I have 2 ramshorn snails who have laid eggs in the past (but these were larger, white and enclosed in a "milky liquid." I've read that cardinals and kuhlis both tend to "scatter their eggs" on plants; quite different than what I encountered. I have no idea what clown loach eggs look like, only that I'm unlikely to see them in my lifetime.
