Odd Bubbles

Hi there... I am new to this forum (and marine) in general, so I am sorry if this is a stupid question!! I am cycling my new marine tank, and introduced live rock about 10 days ago... On one of the pieces, I have these really odd glass type bubbles forming.. Most are transparent, and an odd shape... Would anyone have any ideas what they are or what could be causing them?
Many Thanks!! Rob

Welcome to AA!
They are dinoflagellates. Here's a great article on what to do about them.
