It's hard to tell in the first photo,maybe an anphipod, but the second are just some pods. They're good.

The first is somewhat blurry but I'm pretty sure it's a chiton. Very good for algae grazing.

The second is a type of 'pod (just not your classic curled up woodlice looking ones, but there are thousands of species), and I used to know the name, but since forgotten. Have seen ones just like them, harmless.

You are better at deciphering blurry photos :D

I saw something that looked a bit curled up :p

It's from all those years of squinting suspiciously at weird posts you see online.

Hey, if you look closely enough, you can see a unicorn!

Thank you! Ding ding, I believe we have a winner, at least that was the word that slipped my mind, too...

Here's a marine isopod (only distantly related to land isopods, or pillbugs):

On the right is definately an Isopod of the Herbivore variety, no need to panic. They will just cruize around and eat algae.
