Help Id with no Picture
Hey, I have tried to take a photo of whats on my glass but I cant get my cheapo camera to focus on it so its always blurry. So I will try to explain it.

I noticed on my glass 3 days ago a circle. I ignored it but now there is another circle and its a good 8 inches away from this one. The circle is see through and clear, almost like a gelitan. inside the circle are little chambers. To me it looks either like a honeycomb that is clear, or a grapefruit if you cut it in have and make it become transparent.

I have NO clue what this is or if i should scrape it off the glass or leave it alone.

Only things I have in the tank are some snails, ghost shrimp, and some tetras *til the puffers come then they go to sisters tank*

Any Idea as to what this could possibly be? Again I dont have a photo or anything cause I cant get a clear picture of it.

What kind of snail do you have? My pond snails lay eggs on the glass, looks alot like the way you have described.

There are other snails in there as well but it seems to look like most are rams. puffers like rams right? :)
