What are these white spots?

Recommended Posts

I have had a Biocube 32 up and running for four days now, and just this morning I saw that the glass was covered with many small white dots. Looking closely some appear to have little legs or hairs coming out from the sides, though their size makes it difficult to tell with any real clarity.  What might they be? copepods? Spirorbid worms? eggs of some kind?

I know the picture is not that great, I might try to get another and post it as well.

Look up hydroid jellies on google.  I believe that's what they are.  I had them as well and they just went away on their own.

Thanks, there's nothing in the tank yet, but I assume they don't cause any harm?

I think it's pretty normal for a new tank.  Don't believe they will cause any issues.

I have had these guys multiple times. Completely fine just annoying to clean off the glass every time i look at the tank. They will come and go.
