I found this guy hiding in the filter of my powerhead. Is he a mantis shrimp or what? I caught 4 of these last night.

they are arthropods (hope i spelled it right). they will be all over your tank, wont hurt anything.

Thank goodness. I thought they were the ones attributing to the recent deaths of my hermit crabs. Are they beneficial to the tank, or should I continue to remove the ones that I see? Thanks again, I guess I'm just paranoid :lol:
