something growing on rock??

I have a SHOWLR 40 g aquarium with four seahorses. About 2 weeks ago I noticed the attached image growing on a live rock (started as dead and cycled so no chance it was a hitchhiker). Can anyone identify it? Thanks in advance!IMG_0900.jpg

Do you have males and females in your tank? That looks like eggs from a mismatched courting session to me.

Thanks for the reply. I have four females. I have had them for roughly two weeks. I posted this question on another board, and two people suggested they may be snail eggs?

Still possible that seahorse eggs could have started before you bought them and got dumped because no male to receive them.

If they are seahorse eggs they are old because new spilled ones are bright orange.
