Pods by the thousands.

Somy fish have been in hospital tank for 8 days. Woke up this morning to find thousands of what ibeleive to pods on the glass.but they are hard to identify. any chance that these bugs could be what was infecting my fish. I don't think so but I get paranoid

No the parasites that cause ich will only attach to flesh. What you are seeing is probably a bunch of newly born little reef pods

one of the best parts of this hobby is seeing new things like that. I remember that happenning when I first started my tank. Now I look in the sump every now and again to see if I can find anything new, gotta love all the 'bugs' that are down there, and tiny pods swimming around.
