Is this an egg sac on my glass?

Sorry this post is all over the place.

I found this thing on my glass last night and decided to take some pictures today. Any guesses would be great. When I lightly poke it contorts then whatever is inside goes back to a full circle...what could this be?

And is this a hydroid? It looks like a microscopic jellyfish, they chill on my glass but if I remove them they pulsate around like how a jellyfish swims

5 gallon pico
currently have in tank:
-deep sand bed
-about 40-50 dwarf cerith snails
- 1 big turbo snail
- 2 medium nerites
- maybe 10 small periwinkle snails
- 1 ninja star snail
- 2 marginella snails
- 5 micro decorator crabs (maybe half the size of dimes)
- maybe 3 or 4 tiny tiny chitons
- 1 pink isopod the size of a rollie polli that swims around at night
- 4 barred venus clams
- 3 blue leg hermits
- 2 giant 7 inch bristle worms I cant lure into traps( swear they have learned the truth of the stocking and wont go near it) and they are SO big, thick and scary, but I only see them once in a blue moon.

-lots of copepods
- TONS of munnid isopods
-tons of micro feather worms
- 6 micro strawberry anenomes (they light up under blue LEDs)
-yellow rock encrusting sponge(pretty sure)
-lots of different macros

2 more questions also,

1. Is my pink rolli pollie isopod gonna cause problems?

2. One of my tiny strawberry anemones at an entire dwarth cerith snail whole should I be concerned? The shell is maybe 2mm long but its been jutting out of the anenomes side

My hidden cup coral (similar to strawberry anemones) has devoured countless dwarf cerith snails, the shell even poked a hole through its side a couple times but it seemed unphased. All you can do at this point is hope it’ll survive.

Do you have a photo of the isopod in question? What in the last 2 photos needs an ID?

Do you have any special reefing upgrades or projects planned coming up?
