Anyone know what these clear beads are in the water?

I have never seen anything like it.
Worried it might be some kind of parasite eggs
Im hoping its just some product bits that fell in while the bowl was drying in the bathroom after being washed.

They look like some sort of oil. Do they float or sink? Are they liquid or solid? Do they smell or taste like anything familiar? Definitely pull that bowl until you figure out what they are.

Yes but oil usually floats, there at the bottom of the water.
And Im not going to taste it :persevere:

Maybe do not put the unidentified bubbles in your mouth, I think I saw a horror movie start like that :joy:

That part was a joke. Did you ask Siri what they are?

Yea I guessed so. I did ask but got nothing related
At least no one has suggested its some kind of parasite egg or segment so far. That’s my fear

It’s not like little bits of old shed holding air bubbles, right?
What kind of substrate and cleaning supplies are you using?

Parasite eggs would be odd because these are so large. They almost remind me of the clear gel from dog potty pads or diapers. Is it maybe a media like that? Or cricket/plant water crystals?

Ok thank you, i had a bit of a panic.
I got up courage to poke them with a straw when I read your post.
The image is reflected down into the water (or shadow) from bits of single scale floating on the surface.
I think you can see a couple of the scales floating in the bottom right and casting the gel looking shadow underneath…
There are also a couple of bits of single scales in the tank.
:relieved:
