Mysterious white specks

My 20 gallon tank is suddenly getting taken over by some sort of white specks. They are on the back of the tank, on powerheads, live rock, and even corals. Anyone have any ideas as to what they are, and how to get rid of them? I have a couple of pictures posted in the gallery. The water quality is good and otherwise the tank, fish (clown, blue damsel, and lawnmower blenney), and corals are fine. The tank has been up for about 4 months. Thanks

Yes, I believe that's it. Thank you. They seemed to come out of nowhere suddenly and are growing everywhere--even the stems of my candy canes! I've read earlier posts on this subject now (I should have done this in the first place), so I'm not so freaked out. Thank you for your help. This is a great forum. I can see that its going to be a huge addition to my aquaria education.

Just some pods. They will end up being fish food.
