    Hi, can some please tell me what this might be. For a week now i've had these little white dots forming on my overflow. They multiplying fast. What is this and is it something to be worried about?

    They don't move right?

    If they're hard and don't move it's probably snail eggs

    Nope. They won't hatch most likely. They are however a pain to clean off equipment like wavemakers.

    I got them, even on the hermits shell. Snails have a strange sense of humor

    I left mine and some of mine actually hatched. Got tiny snails everywere in the tank. Was also told they wont hatched, They might become fish food i dont know. The one I do see i move to the sump.
