What are the white dots?

Hey guys, these have been "increasing in number (but not size)" throughout my tank, what are they? Do I need to get rid of them, if so how?

I have a 10galon "high tech tank" with CO2 and lots of light, using
Nitrogen, Pottasium, Phosphorus, Iron, Trace, and Comprehensive

I only have Nerites and plants, no other livestock, I want to protect both.

so, what are the white dots?

thanks for your thought/help

Todd

look like snail eggs?
Nerites need brackish water for eggs to hatch.
They won't hatch for you,but the snails sure seem to be happy!

Nerite eggs. Good thing is they won't hatch and you won't have an overabundance of snails. Some people don't like them as their eggs are a pain the donkey to remove.
