    Hey guys,

    So walking to my tank this morning i noticed these white specs everywhere? They started about two days ago but there were not many. Now there are hundreds of them? They are mostly on the powerhead and back pane. They don't move (From what i noticed) and they kind of point outwards.

    Thanks !

    first pic looks like turnicates/sea squirts, the middle are snail eggs, third is the same as the first...

    do they move in the first pic?

    Not at all? Is it normal that so many appeared seemingly out of nowhere?

    Leave them it's a sign that the tank is maturing & they are filter feeders so all good...
