Some kind of bug????

I turned my lights off last night and then turned them on about an hour later and i saw a gray looking bug crawling around on my LR. What is it and is it normal and is it ok for it to be there?????

Was it snailish but without a big snail shell? Stomatella varia are very snail like but have a flat, form fitting shell.

If it had legs and ran around crazy it could be Thomusgrenusflagellate spermatoa, in which case it's going to annoy you to no end.


Nothing like this hobby to make you feel like a complete idiot.

Sounds like a copopod or an amphipod.
