oscar eggs are a beige colour and they lay them on a flat surface usually ending up in a cicle, the fish would have been cleaning the area where they lay first ,this you would of noticed im sure. Sorry i dont know what snails eggs look like.

They look very much like the one's in the picture except they are stuck to the side of the tank. Looks weird.

If they're stuck on the side of the tank, they're snail eggs.

My O once laid eggs (my old O that died when I didn't know how to take care of oscars). The egss turned into snoflake looking fungus like balls in the tank. (There was no flat surface for them to stick to)
