I notice about 2 weeks ago that I had these little ant like things running around on the live rock. Yesterday I notice that they are growing. So I looked it up. Found out that they are amphipoda's, all the site I looked at say the same thing (nothing at all)... So... are these things good or bad?. & my copperband has been eatting them...

i've got a question along these lines, what if you find them on floating dead?! I find them every-so-often floating at the top of my tank. I know they die, but, I see them often.

aquanewbie,
What you may be seeing is the molted shells of the pods. I usually see them shortly after a water change, but not after every water change is done. I have also noted what looked to be dead hermit crabs, only to find upon closer inspection that they were molts.
