        Hi ken,
        it could be hydra, or maybe some other critters.. what fish do you
        have in that tank? if you can get hold of a lense and view them with
        a lense to get a better view, it would be good as hydra have
        tenticles at the top. though harmless to fish but it can attack small
        fry.
