Can you tell me what this is?

Hello!

I am looking for some help. I have do many experts tell me different things and how to fix it but nothing seems to be working
And they all think it is something different.

It basically starts out as what I call tiny white spots pin size on the glass heater etc. then it grows and looks like a spiderweb or very small jellyfish and floats in the water.
It can also mix up together and create a ball.

It is not on my fish or affecting them. It is just everywhere. My clown loaches often pick at it.

Anh ideas of what it might be?

Thanks in advance!

I haven't experienced them myself, but apparently they are detritus worms. Completely harmless and edible to your fish. Check your feeding and maintenance schedule: it seems the most common cause is over feeding and/or not cleaning the substrate well enough.

I *think* I had a similar thing a while back. I saw tiny little worms "swimming" in the water, and were being eaten by the fish. All gone now, probably all eaten! At least I've not seen any for a long time.
