Are the dots alive or solid as in you cant scrape it off easily?

Looks kinda like my old tank, if its the same thing its tiny snails. Mine looked like tiny white dots that came out at night and slowly went away when the lights came on. Im the am they were all over the glass, in the hundreds!

They are alive and appear to have little antennas.

Probably stomatella but you might want to take a look here Indo Pacific Snails

They really don't look like any of the snails in that article, but they are very small. Do you think they are ok to be in their or do I need to remove them?

I think I have what you have, tiny, white snail looking things. I'm not sure what they are, but they do move around the tank on the glass (but very slowly). If you have other white specs that aren't moving and look like little spirals, these are calciferous worms. I don't think either are harmful, just filter feeders.

I didn't think they were harmful, but I didn't think it would hurt to verify!

They are harmless since they are on the glass and not grazing on your corals. Since you are only showing the side stuck to the glass look at this picture and compare Stomatella Snails

I don't think they are stomatella snails, but they are definitely snails. Them being on the glass would make me think algae eaters. What other snails do you have in the tank?
