Tiny white dots of plants


Anyone have these tiny white dot looking things on their plants? I'm thinking they're alive because they're at different locations from one day to another. are they harmful?

Check the sticky at the top of the Invertebrates subsection of these forums. There is a handy picture guide for identify small aquatic creatures.

They are likely harmless.

Do you have nerite snails? They put little white egg dots on every thing.
