Hydra? Algae? small, puffy white things on glass
I am lost.
Yesterday I noticed my water was cloudy and the surface had some amount of foam, though the water quality is fine and I had just done a water change 4 days ago. I decided to not feed and wait.
The tank is cycled, 10 gallons, has been established since 8 months without problems.
Today, I noticed a lot of puffy white things on one side of my aquarium glass. They seem to be largest near the airstone. at first I though they were juvenile hydras, but after looking at them with my magnifying glass, the smallest things seemed to look rather like sperm o_O? But the bigger ones more resemble wheat grain. I did some research, but I could not find out what the hell these things are and if I need to worry.
I managed to take a pictures through my magnifying glass with my crappy camera (I think it wouldn't work.. but I got a great one!)
I caught one of the bigger ones that look like a wheat plant, and the smaller ones too.. I guess I got all the stages of this weird something in one shot.
WHAT IN THE NAME OF GOD IS THIS??
come on, I got a great close up picture of this thing, and still no one can identify it??
Am I raising a new mutant species here or what
they are indeed sperm. jk lol they look to me like snail eggs. i have the same exact things in my tank. keep an eye out for tiny snails moving about in the tank
are they stationary or moving? What are the tank inhabitants? If they are moving around it could be cyclops.

notice the larger concentration of the "white things" in the picture? i starting seeing these in tank a week before i starting seeing a bunch of Acroloxidae snails.
that concentration of white things seem to be ocnnected my a membraneous substance that attaches the eggs to the glass
My tank houses 3 guppies (only 1 of which is adult) and 4 ghost shrimp.
I strongly doubts they are snail eggs, they are stationary, yes, but I have shrimp and no snails, and these things are literally all over my tank, at least thousands of them. If those are snail eggs, I have some pretty fruitful snails xD
lol well snails can appear on things brought to the aquarium. even fish! i could be wrong however, i want to know too cause i have them in my tank too.
huh well i guess ull find out soon... if they hatch then congrats! if they dont then they might be hydra.
