a strange question

this has happened a few times over the past week or so. while sittng watching my fish swim@. suddenly from behind the rock comes a(what can only be decribed as) a puff of smoke. it appears to be a slightly milky puff that floats from behind the rock, goes @ the display until it hits a circulation pump then breaks apart and goes into the overflow. that is the only way to describe it 'puff of smoke'. i tried for a pic but no chance. almost looks like a very thin small jellyfish. i tried to check from where it comes from the only thing back there is a snail and the hiding spot of my coral banded shrimp.

like a said, a very strange question
i know with out a pic it is probably impossible to tell, im hoping the cloud of smoke ref. may spark a memory or two
thank you for the help

It could be a fish that kicks up some sand. Since it's behind rocks there probably isn't much flow that hits it, so there is enough debris to make a cloud when stirred up. Another possibility is some invert is spawning back there.

Hmm, probably not debris from the sand then. What kind of inverts do you have? Any clams?
