Anyone have an idea waht these little centipede looking bugs are in my tank? They are much shorter than a centipede-about 15-20 legs total and usually curled up. They're grayish and clear and they usually scatter when the light goes on back into the rocks. I have several of them now. ANy ideas?

If so they are called Amphipods...They are good. They eat algae and are benificial to the tank. Some fish will also eat them.
