oops =/ accidently left powerheads off

Last night i was feeding my corals about 1 am and turned off the powerheads. when i got home from school at 3 today, I realized I forgot to turn them back on. There were hundreds and hundreds of pods and worms EVERYWHERE. Lotsa worms i didn't even knew i had. Is that a normal thing when there is no water flow? Also, how bad was it for my corals to have no water flow for 14 hours?

ty very much

Not sure, could simply be the lack of flow allowed more food and detritus to settle for them to eat.

Only time will tell, if they weren't dead, more than likely they will be fine.

nah, they all look fine now. It was really neat seeing all of those critters out and about. I had no idea i had that many pods and big worms. One good thing out of this is that i just put a new pod pile in my tank and lots of critters moved into it =)

Piles of crushed up rock rubble. Lots of little tiny spaces and crevices in it, so pods thrive in them.
