Are you talking about those dark yellowish things? If so I've been keeping tanks since the 70's and have never seen anything like that. They are way too big for snail eggs. Have you introduced anything new before they started to grow? Any new plants or something from a local stream/pond/lake? Honestly not knowing what they are I would remove the decoration, carefully remove them, squirt the decoration with some Hydrogen Peroxide 3% and leave it sit out to completely dry before putting it back in the tank. Also don't rinse the Peroxide off.

’_’ I have never seen anything like that in a freshwater tank before! It looks like a saltwater kinda thing. That's pretty weird. Have you introduced any new plants or fish at all recently?
Just to check: water parameters?
Stock list?
Size of tank?
Are fish eating it or bothered by it?


We need to get an idea of what you're dealing with. This is very strange.

I tried googling it. I couldn't find anything! I seriously tried searching EVERYTHING! I'm really interested in knowing. Did you take anything out of a local lake and put it in your tank? Could it possibly be some type of freshwater sponge?

Are you talking about the dark yellow rings? They look like a part of the ship decoration honestly. If you're talking about something else could you circle it so we know what you're referring to?

Hard to tell without a close up picture of it. It could possibly be a leech.
