    something weird in my filter

    Hello I wish I had a picture of this little thing but I don't so i'm going to have to describe it the best I can. I guess the best way is to say that it looked pretty much like a little shrimp except that it had a black shell and its body was transparent. They were only like 1/4 inch long. Hope that helps. If not, oh well. If anyone knows what this is could they tell me if it is hazardous to a tank.

    Thanks,
    Mike Philpott
