    Hi there. In the last week these started appearing all over my tank. They look like eggs. I've also spotted a few weird looking snails in the tank lately. Are they related ?? Please help.[​IMG]

    I stand under correction but think those are snail eggs. I have two Nerite snails and one leaves them everywhere up to on the shells of all my hermits.

    they could be small tube worms that usually grow on the glass or sump.. are they spiral in patten they usually grow where there is good flow.. try and see if you look very close if you can see a little red fan on the end..

    If you have a binoculars you can turn it around and use it like a magnifying glass to see exactly what's going on. I like to watch my pods feeding like that

    I have had them in my tank as well.

    Nothing to worry about i have a mixed tank.

    In my case they were snails eggs.

    My wrasse eats some of them.

    If don't want them use a scraper to scrap them off.
