Found about 20 of these this morning in a plastic basin that had been emptied of water, but not wiped dry the previous evening. Maybe they were thirsty. These are the biggest ones.

Just to be obvious, that's a 25 satang coin for scale.

Never seen silverfish, if that's what they are, that small.

Thanks. Didn't look like any silverfish I'd seen in the US. But, searching google images for silverfish nymph showed ones that looked like my photo. It's weird. I've been in this apartment for 8+ years and never seen one. Maybe the geckos eat them.
