    i noticed yesterday that there were a few tiny white wormlike creatures that are twirled up on the front glass of my tank. by tonite it apears like there are a hundred of the things! on the live rock and everywhere! does anyone know what they might be? are they good or bad?

    Are they little C-shapes about the size of a pinhead? Then they're probably spirorbid worms which are harmless. You can scrape them off the glass. In any case, can you get a picture of them?

    hehe right behind you. hehe
    The only thing I think it might be is pods. If so there good, there a food source for some fish. I cant say for sure because I dont have any in my tank so I dont know for sure what they look like. Not having pods is the only thing stopping me from buying a manderine.
