Exclamation I have no idea what's on my glass

Ok can't take a pic becuase it's to difficult to see. I have transparent to like white spots/specs all over my glass inside my tank. They kinda had like tiny hairs or they move in the current. I mean they're everywhere. I wish I could describe this better. I thought it might be algae, but like I said it's whiteish. They're definatly attached to the glass and move in the current of the tank. And like I said the spots are EVERYWHERE. Some are very tiny other are a little bigger. The snails that hitchhicked in on my plants definatly eat the stuff. The spots get knocked off the glass and float around in my water it looks terrible.

Hmmm is it spots more like a bubble with lil white dots in them (snail eggs)?
Or rather normal whitish built ups that easily scrub off with a sponge?
Or it it looking like super miniature white worms that move around all over your tank?

definatly not snail eggs. I woud say they're not normal because they're expanding/ multipying. from what I have researched maybe daphnia or algae?

Have you ever had brown brush algae or seen it somewhere's before? Does it look like it just wayyy smaller and white/clear almost?

Or is it rather something (like you said daphnia) that's more like a micro animals that's moving around your tank see any kind o body shape there anything?

Does it move at all (like a lil critter) or is it still hanging on to the same spot of glass forever (like algae would).

What happens if you try scrap it off with a sponge does it come off easily?

Edit: Man you know this would be a LOT easier if you lived in TN and I could just come by and see it lol

I wish you could... I have no idea what it is. Its definatly stuck to the glass... not moving. It sways in the current. Like I said the snails eat it. The fish knock it off the glass my water had tiny particles floating everywhere. I've been afraid to scrape it off without knowing what it is. Wish I could get a pic.

Ummmmm if it's worms or something like that maybe you're overfeeding?

But I can't really think of anything it could be... could u at least try a picture? Maybe it's some type of fish egg or could still be snail eggs...
