    Question White little dots on glass and in rock (Pics) what is it?

    Hi there
    I have a 5 gallon fish tank with
    - 1 cherry shrimp
    - 4 glowlight tetra
    - zebra snail

    I noticed about 4 days back little white dots on the glass.. I just thought it was debri from the snail. But I now realize that is not the case upon closer inspection. I see a few white dots in the rocks on the tank decor and glass. Maybe about 20.




    Are these baby snails? If not please inform me of what it is.
    Thank you

    Zebra Nerites are infamous for little white eggs

    They cannot hatch in fresh water, so you can leave them alone or scrape them off.
