    If so they are pods and they are a good sign of a maturing tank.

    new tank, lots of food for them. Their numbers will go down as their food source diminish. And when you start to add fish that would eat them.

    These are actually a good sign.

    They eat basically everything, but mostly they are herbivores. Great for a nano tank where we cannot hold grazing fish due to their size. Although you should then not keep predator fish that will keep their numbers down.
