Gee, Thayer, I don't know what it is, but it is pretty neat looking. I once
had a small killie tank that I left fishless for a week. I was about to put
fish back in it when I noticed a smll, colorless <thing> swimming around in
there. It looked like a jellyfish without the stringies hanging down, about
3/8 inch across. I left the tank empty for several months hoping more of
them would show up, but it never happened. Whatever it was would have made
great fish food, if I could have cultured it.
I've read on a web site recently that kissers were good algae eaters. If so,
this looks like the kind of algae they would probably like.
