    Strange Creatures

    I've found some tiny bug-like creatures in my bio filter. They curl up when exposed to air and they have several legs. They look to be a slight greyish brown color.
    Do I need to worry about these things? How can I get rid of them?
    I'm sure this is a really stupid question, because I should know what these things are by now.
    Thanks

    They're most likely pods. They're fish food ... so a good thing

    Probably look like these closeup pictures, huh? If so, then yes, they are indeed amphipods. NOthing to worry about.

    Wow that's an unreal close-up, I can see the facets of their eyes lol.

    Cool pic.
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.
