    Just yesterday I found a bunch of little tiny clear shrimp things running around under my zoa but this is the thing that puzzles me. It's a little light brown critter about 1/4" long. They are all over. It's the light brown thing in the picture.

    Mysis shrimp, doesnt look like an amphipod. Do they change direction without turn around?

    It looks like either an amphipod or a tiny bristleworm to me.

    Either way, they're all good hitchhikers.

    And you don't really need to make multiple posts for the same thing. I answered you on another post as well.

    Sorry about posting it twice, I did it from my phone and thought I posted it in the IDENTIFICATION forum and didn't see it because I posted it there not knowing I posted it in the wrong forum. And to answer your question, yes they turn orund when they change direction. Thanks all!
