    So I'm fishless cycling and once in a while I see these little white dots that are on my glass in the tank. They easily come off and I take them out. I use fish food as my source ammonia could this just be rotted flakes sticking on my tank? Really hard to see with the bubbles in the back. WP_20170424_14_15_48_Pro.jpg

    Could you get a close up pic of it or will the camera go all fuzzy?

    It gets fuzzy

    Btw these spots don't bunch up at all usually 1 or 2 at most and appear randomly about every 3 days. Maybe its just debris?

    Could be, but could be other things as well.

    does it look like white tiny fuzzy tufts. if it is; likely just prokaryotic colony forming unit that is just an intermediate organism. nothing of note.

    They really do look like asterinas. I'm guessing his tank isn't saltwater as its in the freshwater beginners section
