    Not sure if this is the right spot.... So I'm still new to all the "good and bad" bugs and creatures that are in saltwater tanks.... but I'm clueless to what these are and if they are bad or not. When I first got my tank set up there were only a few at night. But now there are hundreds O.O...

    I recently saw these things running around my rocks. Now I see them on the glass. I don't know where they came from or what they are. I DID recently buy some berghia nudibranches to deal with an aptasia problem. Are these juvenile berghias?

I bought a piece of live rock from a reputable LFS for my refugium and was told the little red looking things were not harmful as they had been in their main tank for a long time. Anyone have any advice on what it is and if its dangerous? It...

    HI all, I have seen this little bug crawling around on my glass for about 2 weeks now. He is yellow on top, white underneath and has 1 pair of antennae(?). Was about 3mm long when first seen and is now about 8-10mm long. He seems to stay on the glass. Any ideas what he is?

    So I was sitting up close to the tank on the floor when i noticed these little tiny white looking bugs crawling right on the substrate line? I have never seen anything like it and they are just too small to take a picture of. Has anyone ever seen or heard of something like this? Or any idea...

    Hi there, I'm totally new to marine tanks but decided to give it a ago after 15+ years with freshwater tanks. I've got about 100l tank currently on 4th week going through the initial cycling process with some live rock from Fiji and Java. Tank looks great with some weird new creatures...
