There are tiny star shaped, white organisms all over my glass. They are maybe a millimeter wide. they don't move but they just appeared over night. there is a small ball of mass in the center and thin, outstretched "arms".

I read a post a while ago that was similar, but i can't find it in the archives or remember if they are bad. Is my beloved tank DOOMED??!!

my camera can't focus in so small. i wish it could. I don't know if they have anything to do with the hundreds of tiny coepods skidaddling around the glass.

The reading in the link suggests that they are not evil. The best guess is that they eat small copepods and particulate material in the water. :)

I don't know if all fish eat them, but I have to assume that at least one of the fish in my display tank does, because I've never seen them in the display, but they are everywhere in my fuge. I second the hydroid jellyfish; that's what I got when I looked for an ID many months back.
