Heya! this my first post an fishlore, nice to be part of this community, ill probably be needing your help in the near future as im a begginer with aquariums!
thanks in advance for your help!
i,ve got lots of tiny umbrella/feather like organisms clinging to the tank walls and to the plants and i have no idea what they are. the fish look fine, nothing clinging onto them.
it worries me because in just 2 days theyve spread over all the tank walls.
so thats it, thanks

peace, sooperjah

Welcome to FishLore!!
It sounds like it might be hydra. I don't know much about it.
You can google it until someone else comes along who can help you further.

Good luck!

welcome to FL.
I know it's off-topic, but I see you don't know about the nitrogen cycle. The link in my signature explains it, and it is really important to successful fishkeeping.

not hydra

Thanks for the advice on the nitrogen cycle. why is it these petshops never tellme about these details....ill get onto it tommorrow, ill buy the testkit. everything closed today.
its definitly not hydra....these things are tinyer, they dont seem to have stem at all. they remind me of these head massaging devices that are made of wires atached to a handle, except without the handle. and they dont seem to be mobile. ive noticed when the fish come close to them they contract, and cluster themselves to a tiny pellet.
oh well, will keep on searching...

thanks anyway!

EDIT: they DO have a handle (stem) just its about 1/8 the length of the hairs (?) that extend from it. this tiny stem is whats keeping it attached to the wall.
