what likes to live on an acro, looks like a copapod/mantis shrimp, is about 2mm long, looks like a small eyelash to the naked eye, seems to lay eggs masses, little babies live in slimy masses on the edge of the stn zone, and seems to make acros stn..

they do not look like redbugs.. more like a cross between a springtail copapod and a mantis shrimp.. not curled, but slightly long and eyes on the side of the head..

too small to photograph without a micrscope camera..

lol, no clue but I've seen them in my tank and my sps are fine. I think they are a type of amphipod. Are you positive they are the culprits to the stn?

they seem to be hanging on the skeletal remains of the coral... and there are globs of white baby somethings at the edge of the surviving tissue... I moved the coral to another spot to see if it would help... it seems to have stopped dying..
