    The 32 gal is doing great. Everything is growing in. I do have these white little dots on some of my plants and under some of the DW

    Can I see snails?

    If that is the case it could be young snails, underneath the DW was the main clue ?

    With the Nerites I think they must have certain conditions to breed.

    Cut of a piece of leaf that one is on and see if you have a good look at it through a magnifying glass or take it to your LFS.

    those are nerite eggs. The eggs will not hatch unless in salt or brackish water. However, it won't stop them from laying them all over your hardscape. The main reason I do not keep them anymore. The white spots were annoying.

    I know a chap in Australia that collects them in the wild as they extremely hard to breed in the standard aquarium tank.
