Little White flecks on the aquarium glass
I think I might finally be getting some form of algae. All of a sudden I have thousands of these tiny little white flecks on the aquarium glass. They are about an 1/8th of an inch long, if that and very thin. They just stick on the aquarium glass and don't move about. I don't think they are a parasite of any kind. At least, not what I think a parasite would look like. Any thoughts?
Here is a picture http://i619.photobucket.com/albums/t...eflecks003.jpg
I just noticed there is some on the heater and I just added that yesterday afternoon. Whatever it is, it showed up in force yesterday afternoon, evening.

Huh. What the heck are those things?? It doesn't look like any kind of algae that I've ever seen.
I know that I am going to sound like a freak but I just noticed they are disappering. Not all of them but all of a sudden they are not as thick as they were when I first turned on the light.

A freak? I think not! Someone will come along who will know what they are. In the meantime off to google to see if I can find out what they are.
Maybe it's a gazillion itty bitty baby snails??

Sure, I have a bit of time before the B/F comes in and *busts* me for "wasting" time, lol.
Alright, for any of you trying to figure out what those specks are or rather were... they are all but gone. I am thinking the light makes them disappear. I did not see fish eating them or paying any attention to them at all, they just sort of disappeared.

0.0 woah cool they disappeared?
Well, It will be interesting to see if they are there again in the morning. Whatever it is, they disappeared as the light was on them. I noticed just a few last night and this morning, as you could see in the picture, there were thousands of them all over the tank glass. The fish were not eating them so I doubt it was anything alive. I just thought some kind of algae or something,
