happy thanksgiving everyone! I’ve been battling with this bug that I have not been able to identify. You can see in picture the little white dots. Some are very small eggs that don’t move and some are large bugs that I can see moving with the naked eye. They look close to pods but I can promise you they aren’t. They irritate the frogspawn and cause the PE to not be as good. The steps that I have taken so far is dosing interceptor into my main display, 36 hours, 50% water change after time is up. Then repeat One week later to kill off the hatched eggs since eggs cannot be killed. I’ve done this process three times and every single time the babies always hatch and end up coming back. Thanks for yawls input.

interesting that they are coming back if you dosed multiple times. Are you keeping chemical filtration out and turning protein skimmer off for 24 hours after dosing?

Yes, I take the carbon out, but I leave the skimmers on with the cup off. Just to keep ph stable.
