Barnacles

In the last 2 months a load of what look like tiny barnacles have stared appearing on the back of my tank and now are appearing on some of my live rock is this a good sign as I am in the process of upgrading from a nano with fuge to a 60g(uk gallon)tank with twin sumps and was hoping to transfer some of the LR to this tank then use the nano as a quaritine tank

to be honest I don't think my camera would help as they are so small but yes they are tiny little swirls,now 2 of my chromis have dissapeared,I think they died and my hermits have polished them off.I think they died due to stress as my water readings seem ok
