    So I've recently noticed these small white dots in flat against the glass clumps around the aquarium, I thought they could be snail eggs but then they are so small that they couldn't possibly be could they? I've done a comparison to a pencil to show how small they are


    My tank is relatively new, about 3 weeks or a month, it's got 2 baby/fry ( or whatever you call small goldfish ) goldfish in there, they are new I got them 2 days ago, I also picked up 4 more danios for my 2 old and lonely ones.

    Oh and also new plants.

    I have no idea what these are and want to know if they will harm the fish I've also got a similar problem with my other tank which have these small dot things but they are slowly moving with the current ( not sure if they are dust or bug things ) i will talk about that another time though.

    I did some tests on the water and it's all good, on the other smaller one the nitrates are a bit high but will be changing the water tomorrow.

    Thanks for reading ! Please help :)

    They look like snail eggs to me. Could have been introduced on the new plants. They don't harm the fish, but the snails that hatch will probably make a meal of the plants. Usually you can just wipe them off the glass.
