Is this an isopod or a baby bristle worm or something else?

Recommended Posts


I found out tonight some hitchhiker pests tagged along with the GSP frags and Xenia frags that I recently purchased from a local hobbyist.  My only questions are:

  1. What is it?
  2. Is it dangerous to my tank inhabitants?


Thanks in advance for any thoughts.












Any idea?

It looks like the armless herbivorous munnid isopods (attention some isopods are predatory or parasitic http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2006-02/bp/index.php).
In my tank, my munnid isopods are everywhere, pose no problem to my corals (Zoanthus and Pocilloporidae) and are a good source of food for my gobys (my Court Jester Goby love them). 


Here a good guide on pods :
