    Hi there *GOLDFISH*
    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. :eek:

    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.
