    What is it?

    Hello All,

    I'm just wondering if anyone has any insight on what these are?
    They have the appearance of small shrimp, or something similar.
    I have hundreds in my sump and overflow, ranging from small or absolutely minute, and these seem to be sensitive to light (which made it hard to catch a couple).

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Ed

    they are a type of "pods"
    a bit like these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amphipod

    they are beneficial and most of us if not all of us have them.. the more the better
    Cheers!

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Excellent. I've seen many of other pods, much more defined (and ALOT larger).

    Free food is always a good thing!
    Thanks.
