What is this creature?

I have a 55 gallon freshwaterautolinker.com autolinking image tropical community tank. I was recently performing a deep clean and on one of my lava rocks I saw two of these little creatures. They were blueish in color and have legs. They didnít exactly seem like shrimp, but Iím not sure. They werenít moving at first so I poked them and they scurried around pretty fast, considering their size. They were tiny; maybe about 1cm fully extended.

Re: What is this creature?

Is there anyway you can upload and share pictures? Without seeing what they look like, pretty hard to guess.
