These could well be a colony of "moss animals" or byrazoan (sp?). I had
them in my tanks many years ago. They are filter feeders and fun to
observe under a high power magnifier. There are about 10 to 20 tenticles
that show cilia under a microscope. Enjoy them. They will not harm
However, it could be you have hydra. Isuggest taking a sample to a local
community college bio prof or even an elementtary school science teacher
and check it against a pond book field guide.
