parasites

I have a 55 gallon tank. I got it from a friend with a brittlele star, a lobster, 4 damsels, and a small sea urchin. I added a mushroom and a soft coral. 3 damsels died, the urchin died and the other damsel is sick but is eating and seems to be doing better. Last night I found small white living oranisms all over the glass. Is this bad? Help!!!

How old is the tank? If its a relatively young tank, my guess would be either pods or Hydroid Jellies.

Check out the pic at the top of this page...

Is that what you saw?

They look like paramecium hopping around the glass.
