isopod!

i am 90% sure i have isopods..well at least one! I saw it just now while feeding my seahorses. It was about 3 mm long black eyes was clear/brownish and very fast (it ran along the bottom). It obviously doesnt mind the light since it came out while feeding. what should i do?! should i be worried, will it harm my seahorses?? i tried to catch it but it was too fast and hid

Wow, there are about 5,000 different species of isopods- so I can't help you whether they're bad in your tank or not. But I like seeing them in my tank and haven't had any problems with them. Good luck, and hope you have some good ones.

Suntail Goby died! I did check him about 3 or 4 times at night and didnt see any bugs..but he was also usually under the rock and hard to see. He was eating. Could this be the isopod? How long do they take to kill a fish and will they attach to the fish every night or just some nights?
