    Isopod Safe?

    To my understanding, only about 1 type of isopod is safe for fish, i.e. not a blood sucking parasite. I brought home a new coral and this guy was swimming around in the bag. Luckily I saw him before he went in the tank, so he was removed from the bag and the coral was dipped to within an inch of its life. I believe the tail appendages means this is a sphaeromatid isopod, and thus a harmless scavenger, but I'm hoping someone here can confirm that?
