    little spiders

    Reef tank just cycled now seeing thousands of little spider like organisms on the glass. Seem to have 6 legs and are about 1 mm in lenght. What are these? Any Idea?

    just one of the countless 'pods' that will populate your tank. It's a good sign, things are under way and reproducing and have finished dying off.

    The tiny ones are usually Copopods. The bigger curved back type are usually Amphipods.
