scuds-gammarus sp. they are a benthic invert thats a major food source for most fish, closely related to pill bugs. they are the freshwater equivalent of SW amphipods.

Welcome welcome! I'm interested in that local moss you posted. Could you PM me some directions on where to go? If its a public place or a park or something, it might be a good hiking outing with my dogs!
Where do you get scuds?

Ren- I think fissidens grows emersed along riverbanks. The growth pattern is different than the submerged growth you see for sale on here.

Welcome, Ben. So you no longer have a reef tank? That stinks. I'm a member of CORA, albeit an unactive one. I like your darter tank. Where did you collect the skulpins?

no dont have the reef tank any more, i have been playing with the idea of a planted sw tank though.

the darters and sculpin were collected in a creek(dont know the name of it) in DeGraff.there pretty interesting to watch.
