Look like "pods" to me, but an exact ID... no idea.

Enjoy them while you have them. Now is the time to start a fuge if you have the room and desire. They tend to ebb and flow with the age of the tank if not supplemented IME.

If you see them moving about then I would say yes they are some kind of pod. Pods are a good sign and nothing to worry about.
