Identification

I saw two tiny creatures in the refugium.
Cone shaped, like a badmitton birdie. Perhaps three millimeters long. Clear, white at the point, white on the edge of the skirt. About three mm long. Too small to get a picture.
What are they?

Oh, I may have those too. I will see if I can grab a pic and we can compare. That will be later today, after work though...

Still hard to say without a visual.
Have you seen anything like it in any books?

The photo I linked to is a good representation of it, looking end to end.
I found one in the tank today, on the glass.
