    so last night about an hour after lights out, I noticed quite a few little critters in between the crevices of the LR. The definitely not copepods or amphipod, they look like mosquito larvae and have characteristics of shrimp - big eyes, long body, fan tail, could they be baby shrimps? Have any of you guys seen these before? Sorry no pic's, too fast and too small...:p

    They are a miniature type of shrimp, I get them in my simp and in any dark sheltered spots, not any of the larger shrimp, they are really tiny and stay that way
