Default I found something odd

Could be a freshwater sponge, could be a Bryozoan. Hard to tell even with a
picture (can you post one somewhere?), you probably need an expert with a
microscope. You can always ask someone in the Biology department at your
nearest institution of higher learning, they are often quite helpful. But
you can also try a Google search for "freshwater sponge" and freswater
bryozoan", you'll find quite a few pages, many with pictures. Bryozoans and
sponges are harmless and are generally an indication that the water quality
is good with good oxygenation.

Happy Ponding,
