Okay what in the world are these?

Just now looking at my aquarium I noticed little white dots on my glass and a few on the lily bulb behind. I only have a betta, ember tetras, and a nerite snail. In this aquarium. Are these tetra eggs?? Parasites?

This is Nerite snail eggs. You can just clean them because they want special treatment to hatch.

Oh gotcha. I was under the impression that nerites couldn't lay eggs at all in FW

They can lay eggs in FW, they just won't hatch! A single edge razor blade will remove them from glass surfaces easy enough.
