Flowers growing on the glass?

I just set up a tank a week and a half ago and I've kept my two snails in there since I set it up. I also put four plants in my tank and didn't get the annoying cone snails out as well as I thought I did.

I've got Acroloxus lacustris (maybe 10-20 of them) a couple of Nemotodes and some smaller ones that I can't identify but they're super small and if/when they get bigger I'll see what they are.

The part that worries me is that I have found something new on the glass of my tank. They look like translucent flowers that are somewhat attached to the walls. I don't have a camera high res enough to get a good shot of them. There are a couple dozen of them total (but I can't count for the life of me so there may be up to 200).

Anyone see these before?

hello , im new to bettas got my first one 5 months ago . I now have 2 both males. Long time goldfish keeper.

I have had hydra in my tanks before, they look a bit like tiny flowers on stalks, they pull in there tentacles to feed and they can swim and walk around the tank. Hydras killed one of my goldfish fry !

I have also had byrozans, had a hell of a time finding out what they were. They cover the glass, plants with something that looks a bit like a string of beads ( quite tiny) and again have feeding tentacles. They are not free moving, but do get every where. Byrozans are harmless filter feeders. I put up with them. Hydras i killed off.

It's not hydra... :( They look like mini caudal fins of a delta betta but translusent, and attached to a small cord that is in turn attached to the glass. There are no individual strands protruding from the stalk and they aren't green in the slightest. :(
