I have just found white spots all over the bogwood in my tank today. Not sure what they are exactly but I have seen an increasing number of snails on the glass over the last week. I have a pic to show what the white spots look like.

Any suggestions on what these white spots are would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for the late reply. Cheers for the info on the white spots.

I found more are appearing and the loaches are failing to their daily chores. I have added a pic of the snails appearing. It is on the end of the thermometer.

They look like nerite snail eggs to me too , but the snail in the picture looks like a type of ramshorn to me.
Here is a pciture of a zebra nerite, I had lots of white eggs in my tank after I added three of them.

I haven't seen any nerite snails wandering about just ramshorn snails. Most of the ones i have seen are small newly hatched ramshorns ( the shell is still quite soft and colours have not fully pigmented).

Not seeing a huge increase at the moment. Just the same ones wandering about.

I have a problem with ramshorn snails myself, I go hunting twice a day (once in the morning and on an evening) to try and get rid of them. It's difficult to get rid and I've not managed it myself.
