Hey everyone I’m Nick!

this is my first post! Just wondering if anyone is able to identify the little things swimming near the top of the tank in the red circle when I shut my flow off to replace the filter floss. They seemed to be squirming and swimming pretty quickly! I feel like they could most definitely be pods, but I am newer to reefing and I would appreciate the input! Good or bad? Also open to suggestions with my tank!

Something could've spawned? Is there any chance you could suck one into a smaller container using a turkey baster or something? My guess is some type of invert spawn
Unfortunately they seem too small to capture in my camera.. Any advice or anything I can do to make sure it does not harm my tank?

Do you think it’s a fry to worry about? Will it harm my tank? TY
Do you just have the single clownfish, or is their another?

Snail babies, when they hatch, will try to find a rock and then grow from there, IME.

Lets see what other members of the @ReefSquad say.

I have a pair of occelaris clowns, and two BTA’s. I also found a couple vermatid snails on my corals that I’m gonna take care of today, maybe buy a few bumble bee snails? Any suggestions on the easiest way to control or remove? Clownfish fry? Or snail fry?

LOL, I learned to live with the Vermited snails. They eventually went away as the coraline algae enclosed their tubes. I am not sure, but if I had to say...I would say clownfish fry.

Welcome to R2R!!!
Hard to tell from the pic! Google Mysis shrimp or Epitoke worms.
