Copepods here

Got some PODS in my tank finally. They appear to be copepods according to my research on the internet. I was a little concerned to see these tiny things on the glass of my tank (wanted to be sure they weren't some sort of parasite). And apparently they are supposed to be beneficial to the tank... I quit getting that greenish brown algae on my tank so I have been supplementing my tank with spirulna algae discs for the crabs and snails (don't want them to starve). Coraline has begun with some pretty greens and some purple too... Now to add some more corals....

Excellent. Copepods and Amphipods are great signs of a healthy tank.
