White dots on glass

Hi guys,

I finished cycling a tank and added 2 dwarf puffer fish to it. A couple hours later the glass was filled with white dots. What is it?
Thanks

Do the dots move at all? Do they kind of slither across the glass?

They kind of sway in the current but aren't physically moving
