My tank has recently been hit by an outburst of tiny mulloscs, which can only be described as white and very very small. I think they feed on algae as they do not seem to harm the plants, and are slowly moving about, much like a snail. If anyone has ever had these creatures let me know if they cause any damage. Thanx

Thats what I was thinking, most of my baby snails appear white at first, before they grow much
