    So... My tank has been up and running for about 11 months now. I used dry rock to set the tank up and have not added any other rock than dry rock that was cured / cooked for 2 months with a skimmer on it. Needless to say there are no pods of any kind in the tank. I think this is a contributing...

    I have a 14g biocube nano tank that's been set up for about 3 months now. Tank mates are couple of corals, a cleaner shrimp, emerald crab, turbo snails and two newer juvenile clownfish. I've noticed these little guys in the past, but not in such large numbers. I'm not exactly sure what they...

He's got such a strange face, I've seen a picture of this creature's head before but I don't know where, when or why. If you think he's...

    Just started my refugium about two weeks ago - still new to the critters to expect. Found this guy marching around down there. Probably a good half inch long not including the whiskers. So are amphipods normally this big, if that is indeed what this is??? I guess he hitchhiked on a ball of...

  11. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Lately I've been noticing a lot of tiny clear bugs (almost ant looking) crawling around my rocks. I know I have some amphipods in there as I found a big one running around in the sand. But these don't look like they have a round back area. They look like ants. I checked out this site but I'm...
