 This  seems  to  be  a  larva  or  something  like  that  ,  can  swim  but  is  not  a  great  swimmer.  I  only  have  plants,  snails  and  these  could  have  come  from  plants  or  may  be  through
 Overhead  tank  water.

 These  things  are  not  photogenic,  it's  3/4  inch  long.  Does  any  one  have  links  to  aquatic  critters?

 Here  is  the  picture  that  better  fits  your  description  -  look  for  the  oddball  above  rotala   Thumbs Up  left  of  the  watermark

 Most  probably  Damselfly  larvae,  taking  into  account  the  more  slender  body  and  the  longer  caudal  lamellae.  Dragonfly  larvae  are  generally  stouter  and  stubbier,  and  a  lot  quicker.
 How  many  of  these  guys  are  in  the  tank?  Watch  out  for  any  small  fish  that  might  be  around.  They're  predatory.

 @banjohead
 Bang  on  target,  thats  exactly  what  I  have.  around  four  of  them.  Two  of  them  are  imprisoned  in  a  bucket.  ID  confirmed  with  a  gole  search..
 http://www.habitas.org.uk/dragonflyireland/anatomy_4.htm
 
 @Trevor
 I  also  found  dragon  fly  larvae  in  the  bucket  I  stored  excess  cabomba,  hopefully  none  in  the  aquarium  havent  sighted  one  in  the  aquarium  yet  but  these  are  quite  shy  
 http://www.habitas.org.uk/dragonflyireland/anatomy_2.htm
 
 
 There  are  no  fishes  in  the  aquarium  now  but   plan  to  have  cherry  barb  next  week,  are  these  fishes  in  danger  with  these  critters?

 Latest  images  of  the  critters  impriosned  in  a  bucket
 
 http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/gallery2/v/User_Galleries/submerge/DSC00037.jpg.html
 
 You  will  see  two  Damsel  fly  larva  and  a  dragon  fly  larva  marked  with  arrows
 
 These  are  supposed  to  live  for  3  years  as  larva   Surprised  and  then  only  couple  of  months  as  flies  :sigh

 I'll  make  a  suggestion  now   Smile  ,  if  you  can  setup  a  small  tank,  say  a  12"x6"x6"  ,  with  gravel  and  pack  it  full  of  hydrilla  or  some  such  plant,  those  larvae  would  make  some  unusual  and  real  fun  critters  to  keep.  
 I  used  to  have  a  10  gallon  full  of  dragonfly  and  damselfly  larvae,  with  a  few  diving  beetles.  Used  to  be  a  ton  of  fun,  fed  them  mosquito  larvae,  tiny  guppies  and  the  like.
 I  realize  this  may  not  be  everyones  cup  of  tea,  but  ah  well.  
 
 The  10  gallon  houses  a  giant  water  bug  now,  doesn't  let  anything  else  live  in  that  tank.  Belostomatids  are  such  fun.  Smile
