White specs embedded in driftwood

I have these white specs embedded in my drift wood, some tetras with it, and I did have Java moss growing on it, I've never noticed this before and this wood is from a lfs and was pretreated, no tannins.

Nerites will lay eggs in freshwater, the just can't hatch unless in salt/brackish water

My amano shrimp have been pulling the eggs free and dropping them to the substrate. Great little housekeepers.
