I will be glad when I get enrolled in school and start learning more about
these critters, cause I thought I knew a fair amount about the things that
live in our waters around here. Then these little guys pop up, Half the size
of a daphnia and clear like jellyfish, and big enough to see with the naked
eye. Wow learn something new everyday.
Thanks professor for the info I will look them up and find out more about
them now.

The critters you have are copepods. Like Daphnia, they are crustaceans, but
in their own class. Any good zoology book or field guide to freshwater
biology will have descriptions and illustrations. The little balls are egg
