I was looking at my reef tank while the lights were still off and I saw something move very quickly over the rock into a hole, I only have 2 clownfish the tank so I know it had to be something else in the tank, I grabbed my phone and turned on the flash light and started recording and saw this.

That's among the better videos of an amphipod I've seen!

They're small scavengers, and mostly harmless - some folks have accused them of attacking zoanthids, most find them helpful.
