    No idea what this is. Does not look like an isopod.

    Looks like a sea lice. Your Pic's play Trix on size though. Hint on the magnification.

    Waldo at that size i have no idea. My the detail of such a small "ding" is superb. Can you do a little YouTube bit or three for us on some of your inhabitants.

    I think these are way too large. The copepod nauplii I photographed above is 67um. The thing in my third photo above is exactly 1.3mm (I guessed before, this time I measured the size).

    The snail is 2.2mm by the same calculations, and the nudibranch about 5-6mm.
