    I'm not sure but I think this is a little feather duster. It's not the greatest video as I had to use my LED flashlight as when I used my regular ones it vanished.

    I also have a hole :pooh: load of these in my sump and I notices a couple in my DT. Any suggestions?

    I can't really see what you're talking about in the first video....

    But the second one is amphipods!

    Give this on a try. I did it while my tank lights were out and used the flashlight again. It's hidden in a cave in the LR. I zoom in on it in the centre of the screen.

    Thanks Erin. I did a search, and I'm going to guess they're a good thing and the fish will eat them.

    Thanks again!! Guess I should have sid the thing above the bubble algae. Unforunately, I know what to look for and forget that no one else does. LOL! I hope it is one. They want $60 at the LFS for one, and I have gotten this one for free if it is. Just don't know from where cause I haven't bought anything but snails and crabs since I rescaped everything.

    I can see what you're trying to talk about, and it does look like a feather duster.
