Petco Craziness

While waiting for my sushi tonight, I stepped over to Petco for a bit. The SW tanks were shockingly nasty tonight. I mean, it is Petco, but the tanks at this one are usually clean and the guy that works there most times I'm in there is very knowledgeable. Anyway... there was some LR for sale that had a ton of these little blue bug like creatures and this cactus type thing on it. I couldn't get a picture of them that was clean, sorry. Just wondering what all this craziness was

No way that a monti would survive in their tanks and with their lights. its a macro algae. Pods im not sure of though. can you describe them?

They were larger than copepods, almost the size of ants. Seemed to have a rapid movement... no swimming. I was just amazed at the quantity.

Doing a bit of research, that's what they looked like. In addition it was Florida LR and apparently it's a common thing there? It appears some can kill fish... between that, the hair algae, fish swimming strange and another take with algae so think you could hardly see inside, I'll be staying away from anything at that store.
