I was looking last night with a flashlight to see what type of Shrimp I have hiding in my rocks. I think it is a pistol shrimp but I'm still not sure. That isn't even what I am trying to figure out though. As I was looking last night I started looking all over my tank in the little holes in the rocks. I have little groups of bugs swimming around in many of the holes. Maybe 100+ in each spot I looked. It seemed like there were copepods in every hole I looked at but I couldn't tell if they were there eating them or maybe they were raising them. Anyone have this in there tank? I hope it is just my pods breeding but I'm up in the air on this one.(scratch)

 

As for the Shrimp I found I'll post up more on that one in another thread.DOH!

This is what I love about reef tanks; some many things grow.

If the pods are swimming fast then they are probably mysids. If they are tiny, they are copepods. If they are bigger and curled slightly, they are amphipods. If they are flat like, they are isopods. If you do searches you can see pictures of all these.

Gonna have to note that one down, that was a lot of info. How was the drive, any "bumps" along the way?
