Im in the midst of a blackout to take care of an algae problem on my glosso, but this morning as I was about to dose my ferts and excel, I took a peek under the blanket and noticed some tiny round white creatures moving along on the glass. My assumption is that they're baby snails, as my tank seems to have an infestation. I had never seen them out and about while the tank was lit.. Am I likely correct in assuming this, or are there other little round white creatures that climb the glass of aquariums in the dark?

I've no idea what sort of snails these are, but they don't seem to be eating my plants, as I would have noticed a lot of nibbles on leaves with the amount of snails I seem to be housing. These little white creatures seem to move a little more quickly than my adult snails though. Do the baby snails have better movement, or could they be something else?

Could be copepods. They appear as pinhead size white dots moving on glass. If so they are harmless scavengers. They can be removed during water changes.
