I need help identifying this please. I think it's a tiny, baby shrimp???
He must have been a tiny, tiny, tiny hitchhiker though because I don't have shrimp in my tank... and its not like they can just spawn from nothing. What I have in there so far is one keyhole limpet, one cerith snail, 3 astrea snails, and one ninja star astrea.

I googled it and came up with this. The screenshot is identical to what I can see with my eyes and it is a grammaridean amphipod. Thank you!

This is so cool guys!! How do I keep them alive? If they have survived this long soes that mean my tank is doing better than all of my texting shows? What do they do?
Lol sorry if I seem over excited. This is my first saltwater tank and it's cool :D I've already seen copepods on the glass but they are too small to take pictures of.
