    I'm hoping it's not a ispod but it has a similar resemblance. I was cleaning some detritus from the sand bed and when I moved my scoly 2 of these swam out. I did manage to catch one but not sure about the other. Any thoughts?

    I say amphipod. Normally a friendly that eats detritus. Aslo good fish food and sometimes coral food.

    Agreed, amphipod. The anemone tank at my work that has two bta's and two clownfish was being overrun with those pods. You could see them grabbing pellets during feeding time.

    We added a wrasse and two weeks later, they are nowhere to be found haha.

    Okay this is great news! Thank you for everyone replying so quickly. I was hoping it wasn't anything serious as I just got my coral qt and fish qt tanks ready to use going forward.

    @Flagg37 that's definitely my finger ;)

    Thanks again everyone!!
