little bugs

Okay, i cannot seem to find the chat section as something has changed since i was last tryig to chat....oh well.

so here goes. I have found little "bugs" that look like little shrimp, and may in fact be little shrimp. i noticed them at night and they are crawling all over every thing.


A. what are these creatures
B. are they good or not so good
c. if B is not so good, what can i do to get rid of them?

i do have a radient wrasse who eats them if they come out during the day, but he is not even putting a dent into my populatino of the little guys.

If your on mIRC use this server... irc.webchat.org same room # .Chat.planetz.net had a split a few weeks back.

As far as the bugs, sounds like Mysis or gammarus shrimp. In either case, they're good. Free food, and detrivores.

I'm moving this to the ID secton.

sounds more like omniopods to me. Mandarin gobies love to feed off them. They wont hurt anything.
