Looks like some sort of a pod but its huge? Roughly 5mm body and a couple more with the antlers.

When its swimming about its straight like a stick and then when i hit it with some flow it curls up into a c-shaped ball.

One of the good guys? Can I throw it into the fuge?

Amphipod of some SP, usually good CUC, if you see them sometimes on your corals, can be mainly after you feed them, the pods, are trying to steal some food from the corals :)

Thanks for all the replies. I ended tossing it into the fuge.

I've been out of the hobby for about 8 years but I'm back with a vengeance.

Do you have a little reefing side hustle that helps you earn money to put back into your hobby?
