Ok I managed to get one of the white specs out and tried my best to take pictures. My camera doesn't have a macro lens, so this is the best I could do. It was hard and one side was concave, almost like a tiny half clam shell. Could these be baby snails? I tried to get all of the "pest" snail eggs off my plants, but I must've missed some because I've seen about 4 of them.
Anyway, the first picture is it in a net on the tip of my finger, the second is on black tongs, and the third & fourth pictures are under a magnifying glass. The pictures are still pretty blurry, so you may not be able to tell anything.
IF these are more snails, do I need to do anything? I've read that they don't bother anything. I don't mind having them in the tank as long as they won't hurt Mystery or destroy my plants.
