hydroids possibly?

fishy, they may be drawn into your filter but, they are not gone. You'll see that they will stay there and reproduce. lol

That sounds like what I have too. Cindy, when I cleaned my filter, it was blocked with all these little creatures, I think a lot of them had died as the water was disgusting.. but like you said, there were certainly a lot still alive in there!
