Little white bugs

I just took a look in my refugium tonight and saw a tube worm, then looked a little harder and found a baby brittle star, so I got real close and saw a whole bunch of little white bugs in the water and on the acrylic. what are these things and are they good or bad?

TIA

They are pods. they help clean up detritus, and are a good thing to have

Some of them are good some are bad, Unless they start clinging to your fishes don't worry.

Will they automatically migrate to the main tank or do I have to fish them out for my fish to eat some of them. These are what mandarin dragonets eat right? If so how do I know when I have enough pods to have one?

I love this site you guys are the best
thanks again

They are most likely already in your main tank!
