    They are smaller about 1/4 the size of the snail eggs in the link and they move in short quick bursts. I only noticed them because I put on a pair of reading glasses (2.25 power) just to check out the details in the tank. They look like a speck of dust. Do pods move like that?

    Thanks for everyone’s posts :)

    After looking at those pictures, I don't think it is any of them. Gonna try and snap a picture, most are gone now. Scraped off.

    They do not appear to move. Appear permanent, and are about an 1/18 to a 1/4 inch long. they are arced or squiggly, depending on length. Do not appear to move, or if they do it is VERY slow.

    BE CAREFUL!!!! i had the same thing it sounds goin on in my tank, and those little pod like things killed 5 of my fish and ate 3 of my clowns ALIVE. i had millions of them, so many that the water looked clowdy. if u see your fish acting wierd or look like they have dust on them, pull them out and kill the tank. urs maybe good pods, but mine werent, just posting a word of warning so u dont loose as many fish as i did, good luck
