They look like tiny snails. Are they in different spots each day, and do they tend to disappear during the day? If so, snails.

They do not move, is it possible to have snails even if I have not placed any snails in my tank ?

Live rock will come with all sorts of stuff with it. Do they look like little spirals? If so, could just be a type of feather duster- I get little white ones all over my tank. Google spirorbid worms and see if that's what they look like.
