icky little white thing all over the glass!

There are these little white pod shaped things all over the glass, billions of them. They're attach to the glass at one end and they sway with the currant. They look white/clear in color. They're scaring me what the heck are they???? please help me?!?!

They are most likely pods of some sort, without a pic I can't tell exactly the kind. But this is sign of a healthy tank. Be proud not scared. : )

Yep, Edge is right! They are pods. Just wait, they get bigger and nastier looking! But they are a good sign, like he said. Some of the fish eat them....like Scooter Blenny's! Our pods are really ugly, but they do help keep the algae off the glass as well, and they breed like bunnies. We woke up one morning and found like 50, no exaggeration! =)
