What are these little white things?
I'm noticing these little white bubble looking egg things all around the fish tank, under the gravel line, on the driftwood, etc ... I have no idea what they are. The tank has 4 small african cichlids and a bunch of nerite snails ... it is also heavilty planted. Any ideas?

Nerite snail eggs. They won't hatch in freshwater. They'll stay like that pretty much forever unless you manually remove them.300 gallon mega tank: build in progress
75 gallon community tank: tetras, danios, corys, platies, otos, pearl gouramis, bristlenose pleco, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
70 gallon growout tank: clown loaches, sailfin pleco
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
29 gallon frog tank: 1 bullfrog
10 gallon and 5.5 gallon betta tanks: 1 male betta each, sometimes snails

Nerite snail eggs, They are not viable in fresh water and are a pain to get off.

Ah I thought that was what it was but I didn't know they would even breed in fresh water as they aren't in any of my other tanks with snails ... odd.
