    I have no idea as to what this is, been searching all over the web but no luck. Its about 1x1mm in size and this is the first one we notice in the tank, there is a bunch of other small white bugs crawling around on the glass as well, its a bit blurry but there is the other small white bug off to the left of the 9 legged bug thingy.

    The bug things are most probably amphiopods.

    Google amphiopods to ID if that is what the bug looks like. If they are Amphiopods they are good guys.

    Thanx for your help, it might be those, were only able to find one similar photo on Google, but also with no real identification as to what it is, but if it falls in the same group, then i guess it should be fine, should i worry if it starts multiplying rapidly?
