Just noticed a bunch of little critters breeding in my Coral Quarantine Tank. I'm hoping these are shrimp of some kind. Does anyone know what they are? If it's shrimp does anyone know what kind? Also please don't let them be Bristle Worm babies lol

Could they be eating my Zoas? Should I have a natural predator in my Quarantine Tank to control them? The only fish in my Quarantine right now are two clown fish.

^^^What all of them have said^^^

Harmless (at least in my 30+ years I've never had one hurt a thing), detritivores, that just happen to be enjoyed as a snack by many different fish.
 

Have you ever had aquarium equipment damaged by livestock?
