Lots of these critters in the Gulf of Oman at the moment, not your usual bell shaped jellies but they had interesting "egg like" attachments.

They were mainly from the surface down to about 6M, water temp 22C

Additionally there were strings of these, looks like eggs, had a few wrapped around my strobe arms while photographing the above

Looks like a salp of somekind to me - Bonaire was full of salps on one of our night dives a while back. EEEECCHHH - they would get wrapped around your face and neck - not pleasant.
