There are these tiny white disk shaped things on the glass and driftwood of my 30 gal angelfish tank. If I look really close, they have kind of a flesh orangish color in the middle. I know they are alive and I can squish them with my finger. My stupid camera sucks and cant get a good pic of them but does anyone have a clue what these might be?

small white moving disks are probably limpets.

I think I might know what your talking about. I have them too!!
They are like tiny clams or barnacles that you see on boats. I seem to have two different kinds. One looks like a small clam, sometimes they open up and you see these small little feet and they run/swim extremely fast. My fish try to eat they sometimes. The other types looks like half a clam shell and they stick to my glass and some get inside my filters. Sort of like snails. I always wondered what these things are.
