strange bug in tank.....HELP PLEASE!

Postby guppylover » Wed Jul 27, 2011 6:40 pm

ok I was doing my routine search in my tank to make sure all is ok, when I spotted a really ugly bug in my tank. I got it out and found a few more. Here is a picture of 1.



My tank is fairly new so guessing whatever it is would have come in on my plants when I set up the tank.
I could not get a good shot of it but it seems to possibly be getting wings on its back. also the largest one I found seems to be giving birth as I can see little white dots appearing from the back end.
any ideas please? many thanks in advance xx

It's a Dragon Fly Nymph, they can eat small fish when they get bigger, so remove them when you can.

Really?? wow looks nothing like I thought. Thank you so much Jack. I have pretty much destroyed my tank searching for these. So hopefully I have got them all. I will be keeping my eyes open for more over the next few weeks. Thanks again xx

Jack has named it for you and they would have come in on your plants.

Be sure to check really good when you first turn the lights on, they are more active at night.

thanks everyone. I managed to get all the buggers out but soon realised that they had given birth to loads (and I seriously mean loads) of babies. So I soon set up a new 70L tank and scapped everything from that tank. It was such hard work trying to combat this problem but hey I won in the end lol
