Have you seen this guy?

I have this little critter that came along when we put some new live sand in our tank. He only comes out every once in a while so I haven't got a chance to get a pic of him but if I can I will. I will explain him for now. He is very small about the size of a pencil eraser he is white with little black stripes across his face and back. He looks like a mini shrimp of some sort. Not sure. He comes out when we feed sometimes and hes wicked fast. The fish sometimes try to run after him but ooooooooohhh no hes a quicky. Like I said I'll try to get a pic but I'm not sure when I'll see him next. For now does he sound familiar?

No need. They are excellent detrivors and a natural food source for other animals.
