Ants or baby isopods

Post by NLindsey921 » Fri May 26, 2017 11:47 am

I don't think this I am emergency at the moment but I need y'alls input. Just woke up and went to change the crabs food and the bowl is full of little bugs. They move really fast but I managed to get a pic of them. Are they ants or baby isopods or something else entirely?
The bugs are those little white creatures in the left side. Image

Thanks. I was freaking for nothing. Just surprised me cause I didn't think any isopods had survived my last cleaning.

Cleaned the shell shop out and the crabs had so much poop in it that the baby isopods have plenty of food.

Just so you know, while reeeeally little ant species do exist, imature ants are larval in nature, like beetles, butterflies, flies and bees - so you'll never see little white juveniles scurrying about. :)
