Default Crazy Floating Things in Secondary

I have these large globs that are suspended mostly at the top of my secondary glass carboy. Various sizes but geherally on the larger size. Periodically they sink to the bottom and then rise back up. I did siphon in some of the top garbage from my primary. Any ideas as to what I am looking at. My best guess is that I have a colony of sea monkies doing deep dives in my soon to be beer.

Sounds like trub/yeast suspended by CO2. Give it more time and if it is just yeast rafts/trub then it will settle out.

I do not have picture posting ability. Some of them do crash and stay at bottom I can see a few down there.

Sounds like yeast but sorry, there's nothing we can do without a picture.

Camera phone?

I think they are yeast rafts as well...how long has it been since you pitched your yeast? And I take it there was krausen which has now fallen?

This would be day 13. Racked into secondary on day 7. I took some pics with a camera but you really cant see the divers in the middle of the carboy.
