Do you have a photo? I assume they are pods and they are beneficial to your aquarium and you want them.

They are super small you won't be able to see anything , but they tiny red looking worms , little bugs that look like Rollie pollies , some like lady bugs , some look like little brine shrimp , and then you see little tiny dots jumping around , should I put it in my tank ? Or leave it out ?

Sounds like bristle worms which are usually OK and Pods which are normal and fine.

Really? I was like freaking out , it's cause my tank crashed and I just got it up and running again and when I saw these things I kinda was confused so I cut around the rock until it was just the coral attached to a little bit of the Rock , is that fine ? And can you tell me what kind of coral this is ? I'm not sure what it is
