    I just got new glasses 2 or 3 weeks ago. And I cannot make out what I'm looking at.

    Please, better pictures. Please.

    It's about 3cm in diameter and looks like it's a bubble being blown by that white tube through the hole you can see. I have 2 of them.
    Looks very sci-fi

    Today I have 5 of these things...
    I'm guessing the white tube looking thing is a filter feeder and blows a mucus membrane bubble to collect food from the water column.
    I'm no expert but logical to me
