i have loads of these in my 38L tank, all i have is one apple snail, 5 ottos and 4 white clouds and they were in there before those inhabitants were introduced. something must put them there. they never turn into much.

I had the same thing all over my bogwood few years back, they were nerite eggs. Good luck with them, they're a real pain to get off. Won't come off with a light scrub!
