i see it now, sorry. i'm willing to bet you have enough pods. many mistake amphipods for copepods. copepods are very hard to see.

I used to see amphipods in my fuge(look like little rolly poly like bugs running around right?) and these other REALLY WEIRD things. They were white and moved by opening their giant mouth and kinda sucking themselves along. Do you know what they could be? I bought new rock after the hypo but it was uncured. You think it had pods on it?

hmm..hyposalinity in the entire tank? now i'm leaning towards a lack of pods.
how much rock did you buy?
i think those are clear flatworms you are mentioning that were white and kinda "sucked themselves along".

Oh ok so its good theyre dead lol. I did hypo in the tank and kept one rock alive in a QT along with my inverts. I could catch the fish and it would be less stressful and they would kill eachother so thats what I did. I bought 21lbs uncured rock last weekend.
