    Just noticed this today, a few small specks on my glass. I know it's not a jellyfish, but don't know how else to describe it's shape.

    From underneath of it (on the glass):

    The only way it could have gotten into the tank:

    Hydroid. Some are bad, some are good.

    Looks like medusa stage hydroid. Yikes. There's quite a few of them. I hope they don't turn into a pest.

    Gotta say Art, your skill with the camera has made these pictures look a lot better than what I've seen in the past :D
