ADDITIONAL PICTURES UPLOADED IN THREAD

Added a few corals last night . . . . woke up this morning to this thing stuck to the overflow grate . . .

Its free floating form resembled a doughnut like plastic bag floating in water. Upon scooping it up it turned out to be a strip, which reacted to the touch and each of its two ends curled up into what you see in the picture below:

WHAT IS THIS THING!!!

I've seen something kinda like that in fresh water tanks were it encasing a dead fish.

again, the only movement this organism expresses is when it is uncurled. It will go back to its fruit roll up state but on its own control. When I found it, it looked like a bag drifting in a water column.
