    They look like little jelly fish. There's a huge thread on RC about them. Harmless, I believe. Mine disappeared a few months after they first appeared.

    Sara pegged it on the head.
    It's a jellyfish.
    Harmless, and in fact will probably disappear shortly as they don't last very long.

    I had those same things when I first setup my tank. TMM is right they are little jellyfish. If they get dislodged from the glass they will swim until they find a nice place to pearch. I had some in my fuge for about a year until they all disapeared.
