Cleaning my filter sock today and found this guy alive, looks like what a frozen mysis shrimp looks like except this guy kept moving his legs. Anybody know what it might be ? I threw him away

Fine to stay in tank, you will find more lol. I cant remember what they are but i have loads of them. They are a type of amphipods as far as i can tell from the pic.

Come in with live rock, on a coral, some even stay on fish. Just like anything else lol. They usually survive a coral dip as well.
