Question Strange mass in tank

When I was feeding Steve this morning, I noticed something weird in his tank. I should have taken a picture but I didn't have time and the lighting wasn't great.

It almost looked like a grape. It was only maybe a half inch in diameter, was perfectly round, and was a pale tan in color. My thought process was to get it out of the tank and then photograph it in better lighting, but when I attempted to remove it, it popped and this thick yellowish gunk came out of it. By the time I got it all cleaned up, the skin of this... whatever it was.. had dissolved and I was left with a jar full of yellowy water.

Steve seems fine. He got all excited when I came up to the tank and was flicking his gills, and ate his food just fine. And I had just done a water change and put in a new filter cartridge so everything should be nice and clean still.

Any ideas what that might have been? It was really odd..
