Yep dragonfly larvae. Net it, get rid of it. Before they become dragonflies they live in water in this form and they are aggressive nasty hunters. Get it out now Morgan. What have you put in your tank recently?

Thank you sabertooth and tva351 for this information, I will get rid of it tomorrow. Have not put anything in the tank for a couple of weeks when I added the ramshorn snails but I put them in one at a time and I did not see anything like this thing.

I'm backkkkkkk, howdy peep's I have been away on holidays to FNQ and had a GREAT time.  :-*

A friend has been looking after my shrimp tank for me and I have returned to the sight of shrimp everywhere, which is amazing because I only started with ten and I have not had the tank all that long. I attached a pic but that is not all the shrimp, this is one little group but there are LOTS more.  :o 

On the subject of that awful dragonfly thing I posted about, even though I tried hard to find it I never saw it again after that one day and my friend says she has not come across it during the time I was away, go figure.

I hope everyone and their shrimp are well, I am off to read some of your posts, byeee.  :-*

Ok, now is this a coincidence or what? I have NEVER seen a dragonfly here until this morning when I discovered one of the cats playing with this.




HAS THIS MYSTERY BEEN SOLVED?

That's where your dragonfly larvae went. It turned into a dragonfly and flew off. They  spend the majority of their life in the water so it was in your tank for a long time,or someone else's if you introduced a plant or something. Nature is amazing isn't it?  :D
