    Need help identifying white “bugs” in aquarium.

    I’ve actually been planning on getting some more plants I just haven’t had the chance to go to the pet store. Do you have any recommendations for easy to care for plants?

I feel like they have been there for a while but upon closer inspection I saw the white specks on the aquarium glass and much to my...
