I recently noticed some very small clearish white and pink toned shrimp looking hitchikers in my tank. I will upload some pix later but when I showed them to my lfs they said they were scud. When I googled scud they do indeed look like them but most information I find is in regards to freshwater tanks not saltwater anyone have any experience with these?

I will try and upload the pictures tonight (my phone does not work with pic uploading) however from what I understand a scud is an amphipod... but not all amphipods arescuds. Does your id of them being amphipods mean the exact type doesn't matter or that scuds are only freshwater or brackish species? Just want to make sure I'm clear. When i google either scud or amphipod I find pictures that appear to be identical to each other.
