Cerith eggs
Critter Category: 
Snail/Nudis

This recognizable pattern is created by Cerith snails (not the snail you see munching to the right). The thousands of white dots left in a serpentine pattern are cerith eggs, which when left unbothered will result in cerith babies! I've seen this pattern appear in my tanks on occasion. Unfortunately they were laid right over the silicone which spoiled the photo. Reef-safe
