amphipods are generally considered good. not all fish will bother with amphipods if they are fed regularly. I feel like if I get lazy on feeding the pod population gets picked on more, but usually the clowns can care less. It depends on the species of fish, my sixline likes to hunt them, bluehead wrasse is the same, but the rainbow wrasse can't be bothered. go figure.

lice and fleas are different they are terrestial bugs, different story there

My fish tried to eat one but spit it out like it was prickly
No one eats them

Sorry, but I disagree. I haven't found anything wrong with them being in the tank. I've had an 8" one in my reef tank before. They benefit a tank, and I see nothing wrong with them. I feel a lot of the time, they get a bad rap. To each's own, though.

I'm not that into poisonous worms. I did have a Lion Fish for years, so you're right, there is a creature for everybody...just be careful, if you grab him wrong, he will make you cry for Mama.
