    Hi abit back about 6 weeks ago I put in some very lil copepods from DT's and now I have lots...lots...lots...of lil white headed critters, very little, but they have like a tadpole tale...and they love to crawl over everything. And are super fast...They also like the a filter that is lying in my sump. Are these copepods or something else. The population is expanding...what should I do? They are like lightning fast..and really remind me of a baby tadpole...

    They are probably some type of pod.Dont worry about how many there are,your fish will love all the fresh food coming into the tank.

    If you dont like them get a six line or a mandarin and like magic they'll go away and amazingly the fish will be fat. :)
