I just noticed this clear transparent object growing on my mag-float. It appears to have small objects inside that could be eggs. Help me solve the mystery and know if it should be removed.

Thanks,
Dan

Bubble algae, maybe. I've seen some that were a clear-white color

It's hard to tell from the picture the 3D shape and size. It reminds me of a conch egg though. Here's a link to pictures of my conch eggs (about halfway down the page.)

Sorry about the bad lighting. I will have to just wait and see. I did just recently get a conch.

So many cool things can live and breed in our tanks, if we let them. Smile
