Beginner-help! unusual growths on side of tank

Postby Laura » Wed Aug 01, 2012 11:14 am

My 13 year old son started a tropical tank. There is an unusual growths attached to side side of the tank. It is not algea, they are small (head of a pin), tan, wavy things that appeared overnight. I was hoping someone might know what they are

Planaria are white and look like little threads.
Are they all over the tank? Only on one side? Only on the glass?
