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?

125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp

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

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

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.
