Hard specs?

I am getting little spots on my glass on my 29 gal. They are hard and don't move that I can see. they are little white specks about the size of a tip of a fine point pen (very small). Nothing on the fish. Is this something I can just scrape off or am I looking down the barrell of an infestation?

If you look close, do they have a spiral shape to them? If so, they are spirorbidae worms... a harmless filter feeing tube worm.

Ok do I just scrape them off the glass? On the front anyway?

Yep! Just scrape them off the front glass so they don't obstruct your view. Any others you can just leave... it won't hurt anything.
