Looks like the beginning of coralline algae to me. The white dots in my tank turn green then purple.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would think they are small snails. Can you get a closer picture? Do they move at all?

It's algae, I'm telling you guys. LOL If you have to scrape it off that seals the deal. I leave mine and after a few weeks it is purple. I must have hundreds of those white dots in my tank.

NOW, if it moves or is a swirly type of pattern then yeah its a snail but if it's just solid it's the coralline.
