    not sure how familiar you are to saltwater... but could they be pods ?


    they are normal to have, usually comes with LR. usually you will see them more at night with a flashlight like 1-2hours after your lights are out.. but can also see them during the day from time to time.

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

    Pods are not suppose to have legs? Do some kind have a shape of worms and can zig zag freely(without being on the rock) in the water??

    Thanks
