Re: new eggs but not sure who they are from #4
Many snails are very good at hiding or even burrowing and some are even nocturnal (which means they only come out at night).

There's a chance that you have only a few snails and their size are not really big so you can not spot them. Have you add any new decoration lately?

Re: new eggs but not sure who they are from #5
As Nathan said, snails are good at hiding so if you only have a few, you may be unaware of them. Those eggs don't look like fish eggs and none of the species' of fish you've mentioned have sticky eggs that would be on glass. All are egg scatterers.
