Ok I found another one. The best way I can describe it, it looks like a doodle bug or as some call it a pill bug. You know the ones you picked up as a kid and they rolled up into a little ball? Is this harmful?

Isopod...there's like 10,000 different species most of which are fine but some are parasites that feed off fish.

Yours looks like the same as the one I found. Did you place your pod order with reefs2go.com? And is it tan with white stripes?

Yes I did and I am not sure about the color of it. I'd have to find it again

If that's where you got it from then I wouldn't be overly concerned about it to be honest. I had 3 from them which all ended up getting eaten or died off.

I've gotten the same thing from reefs2go also, it's harmless.
