Baby Snails?

So what do baby snails look like? My wife thinks I need to pass out cigars.

They look like... well... baby snails! (Sorry... but not sure how else to describe them! Really really small miniature versions of whatever snails you think reproduced. Yes... they have a shell. And they're normally pretty light colored.)

I've got a couple of little almost clear dots and the wife was saying that's what the fresh water snails looked like when they spawned.

Clear dots on the glass? That could be snail eggs, not yet hatched.

I think I have the same thing going on in my tank. There are hundreds of tiny white dots all over my glass and on some of my rocks. They are solid white and have what looks like the starts of a swirl on the shell. I'll work on getting a picture.

I think they are marine worms, Like little featherdusters, but with little threads that come out and fish for food. They are a good thing and not to worry...

Not to hijack this thread, but since we're on the subject of snails...... any idea what these are?
