so... in my recently setup 20 gallon tank I see TONS of tiny little pencil tip sized red dots crawling along the glass. I know there is a 'red bug' pest for acropora and such but it looks like from the pictures online that is a yellow bug with a red head. Do you think I just have regular ole copepods from a relatively new tank? How do you know what the tiny pencil tip sized creatures are?!
