    Can you describe them better, hard? Soft? Easy to come off?

    I think they are hard as I get some on my glass now and then.
    I got a lot of SPIRORBID WORMS in my tank and they have a hard white body that they form (ALMOST LIKE MINI FEATHER DUSTERS).

    I noted in my sump that there where dots and then months later there where a lot of SPIRORBID WORMS.

    We will need a pic. I will take a pic in my tank and post it as well.

    As I said yesterday - here is a pic of the wite dots in my tank that builds up and get bigge r an then sudenly you get below pic. Almost like a mini feather duster.

    It helps if calcium is good in the tank , it will help there tube to grow.

    Leave the dots for now and see what it is doing before you destroy it.
