I had worse in my freshwater tank. They died off rather fast though.

They'll die as fast as they came. It isn't a bad thing, it just means there's life in your tank.

Great! It is amazing how time flies, the cycle will be done in no time. I can't wait to start the cycle for my new tank. I figure that should go fairly quickly since I will be adding roughly 90 LBS of LR from the start.
