Critters in sump

I have been "reefin" for a few years, and never bothered to I.D. these little guys. I cant supply a picture, but they a clear and "shrimplike". They are about the size of a pencil lead. Ideas??

yup copepods! Sign of a healthy tank. If you've been going for a good 3 months, your tank is mature enough for some madarin or green psychadelic goby's... their diet is exclusively copepods.

And they look real cool.

I thought the psychadelic Gobies diet was mainly "shrooms"

LOL
