I got a bunch too....most of mine are in the body of my skimmer and the sump. Everytime I clean my skimmer, I wash a bunch of them off the walls of the skimmer. I dont think they do any harm to anything though. They have shells on the top side that covers them almost completely.

Yea I just sent some with fishfood, they eat the algae. If they are the same they have just half their body covered with a shell.

I used to have a few of these guys, maybe two total. They move pretty fast and seem to have a thin shell. The suddenly they must had died because I have not then either in months.

I'm not sure what that is in the picture but what I got from Karen was a stomatella. I had 2 in my tank but wanted a few more. Below is a link about them.
