    ive see them only at night , the biggest one i seen is about half an inch , they look like those small roachesa and act the same way , as sson as the light comes on the start scattering, just creepy looking, im assuming they are harmless because ive had them in my tank for a loooong time with no ill effect on anything, just wanna know wth they are lol

    Yep, you're correct. They are awkward little creatures.
