White Spots on Live Rock???

I have just recently found these white spots popping up on live rock and the black plastic of the back of my hubby's solana 34g tank. We have no idea what they could be. Could anyone please help identify these?

Are they fuzzy and soft? If so, probably just harmless sponges.

They are hard, so that means not a sponge! Any other idea's??? They also don't move around.

They look just like sesame seeds. There is no swirls on them but they are popping up everywhere. In the tank are 3 Mexican Turbo's and 3 sand digging snails. Not sure of their name, but could they be from any of these snails?
