Hi! I was just looking at my 15 gallon nano reef, just checking it out and thinking about the water change I’m doing in an hour, and suddenly I noticed movement on the sand! The longer I looked the more I noticed loads of these tiny little shrimp/centipede looking guys!
Can any body tell me what they could be?

Looks like a crustacean, either an amphipod or an isopod. I'd lean towards the former.

Amphipod. Really good critter for your tank as they help clean up extra food bits, waste, etc. My sump has a bunch of them and they do a good job working on it.
