What are these White Specs?!?

These white looking eggs have been spread throughout my tank for the past month now. I thought they would be eggs or something so I didn't bother touching them. Nothing has changed with the white specs so I'm assuming they aren't eggs. Anyone know what they may be and have any suggestions?

I'm pretty sure they're baby tube worms.

They look like pods. Is this a fairly new tank?

My tank is about 4 months old. But, these white specs don't move. They stay still and just sit there.

They could be Spirorbid Worms. If you look very closely are there feathers coming from one end?

I'd say baby tubeworms too or fan worms.
