10 gallon tank algae?

My ten gallon tank is being overrun on the sides by little whiteish things. It isn't solid like algae, and from a distance it doesn't look very obvious, but if you get up close it looks like it's all over. Any idea what this might be? Water params are normal and the water is clear/healthy. My oto goes over the spots, but does appear to be eating or removing any of it.

Hi dprUsh83.

Whitish things? Sounds like calcium deposits to me.

Do they look sorta like little white worms (like very little)?

The cause of planaria is over feeding

If it was planaria, then your case is also the same as Sarah's.
Here's her thread.:)
Good luck, dprUsh83.:D

I don't know, could be...they don't really look like worms. I used my algae brush and scraped everything off the side, but I can't really scrape the glass at the back of the tank....oh well, I'll cut back on feeding and hope that works
