i have small flat bugs white to gray with many small legs in my salt water aquarium. The are flat like a red flat worm but oval shape and no tuxcido tips on the bottom like flat worms. they come out mostly at night. They can swim but mostly float around with the current. they have small legs like a shrimp. I thought they were flat worms at first and used medicine but it had no effect. We have flat worms in the tank at work and they are not the same except these are flat too. I only see them on the glass or sand next to the glass. They are not fleshy like worms but more ridged.

Just watched the video. I can honestly say that is about the only thing I have not seem in my tank.

Did they look like that?

I had them before, and took a while to get rid of them....
