    So I have these white spots showing up all over my glass. They don't move that I can see and have a clear looking ring around the white part. They are about 1/8" across. Any ideas as to what they might be? 20181027_160546.jpg

    Look like baby snails to me. Do you by chance have trochus snails.

    I don't, I just have nerites and nassarius snails. They do resemble nerite eggs after looking up what their eggs look like.

    They are nerite snail eggs. They look like little sesame seeds, right?

    I have them all over the place too... never do anything that I have ever noticed.

    Yeah they do. Do you ever see baby nerites? I haven't seen babies just the eggs and after looking closer I've seen proof that they've hatched.

    Nerite eggs, never seen them reproduce in captivity, they have planktonic larva I believe and many need brackish conditions to breed

    I'm not sure that babies are surviving. There are eggs all over both of my tanks and I can see where some have hatched but have not seen any babies anywhere at any stage.
