    white little things?

    Past few days I have noticed a lot of little white things stuck in my glass. They are also in the water too.
    First I though they must be some kind of algea. But today I noticed they are moving.
    any ideas what they may be?.
    I also want to meantion that I am new with this hoby and sometimes I may ask question that may seem stupid to some people. I hope that won't bother you. So far this site has has been my favourite place of finding information.
    I really want to thank everybody posting replies and different information.

    difficult to tell.

    Sure its not just bubbles forming in your diatom algae?

    Is it in your main, or your sump?

    Hi Art,

    my guess would be copepods. they are benifical to your aquarium. need a better picture to confirm it though.

    as for asking questions, we've all asked some stupid questions, but it's the best way to learn in this hobby.

    I agree with barry_c in the copepods theory.
    The only stupid questions are the ones not asked, we're all learning and questions are a great way to increase knowledge, and discuss what you already know.

    wow. thats a fast reply.
    I thank you so much for the reply.
    You are right. Today I checked and there are some that seem to be bigger and more visible.
    They must be HYDROID JELLYFISH.
    They look exactly as the ones shown in the picture Tank_man posted.


    Thanks again.

    Hmmm??? I personally think TangMan snuck over to Art's house lastnight.., planted the little Hydroid jelly dots all over the glass, went back home, prepared the link and just sat there waiting..., knowing very well Art would wake up to many white dots and ask about it!!!

    Tangguy..., we're on to you!!!!!!
