    HEHE congrats!!! these are copepods.
    I'm not sure on the species.

    These are great, this means your tank is doing good.
    they will feed your tank

    What ever your doing, your doing it right
    Keep it up !

    COPEPOD:

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

    you are correct, there are bad species of isopods but those are harmless and completely reef safe.
