Little white specks

Recommended Posts

Kitchennano

I’m new to reefing and I was doing a water change and noticed that I have white specks on my glass, the seem to have 5 little legs. Are these bad for my tank? Could they be pods? I’ll attach a picture to help identify! Thanks

Thanks! Do they stay that small? What purpose do they serve? Are they fish food?

They stay that small and are usually part of the new tank blooms that occur. Usually they will just disappear on their own. I’ve only heard of them being an issue with seahorse tanks.
