What type of larva is this?

Any ideas what this is? After lights out tonight I found dozens of these swimming around the tank. They are around 2-3mm.

Cool. Wish I had some in my tank. I have been wanting to get some to culture for a while.

They frequently show in LFS old reef tanks,or in their LR holding tank.You need to ask permission to go siphon out some... :wink:

Cool, I am going to collect a bunch of these and see if I can get a culture going. How big do they grow? I wonder how they got into my tank I haven't introduced anything new in a long time.

They've probably been living in there, somewhere they were safe. It's as the colony starts to grow that you start seeing them move away from relative safety to more marginal areas (and, hence, you start seeing them more).

Right.They come with LR.They don´t have nauplii or larvae that could come with other stuff.
I don´t know how you catch them,but IME a siphon is the best way. :wink:
