 Hi  All,
 
 When  I  was  dosing  my  Micros  found  these  creepy  guys  in  my  planted  tank.  Can  anyone  identify  who  these  guys  are?  And  are  they  advisable  to  be  kept  in  a  planted  tank???
 
 
 
 
 Thanks
 Praveesh

 Praveesh,  Its  a  damsel  fly  larvae.....     because  of  their  lean/narrow  body!!
 It's  slow  than  dragon  fly..  it  will  take  on  small  shrimps  or  fishes  in  the  tank!
 but  as  other's  said  ..  you  don't  wanna  take  chances  keeping  this  kinda  ugly  ones  in  the  tank!!  
 
 And  if  you  wonder  how  this  has  got  inside  the  tank....   your  newly  bought  plants  might  have  had  the  eggs  underneath  them!

 Pretty  sure  to  be  Dragon  fly  larvae.  From  my  experience  ,  pretty  dangerous  to  small  fishes  /  fries.
