I have a similar problem with ladybugs. They fly to the tank light and end up in the tank. So far, I haven't noticed any issues. If it's a really large bug, I'd just say remove it when you notice it. If it's a small bug, the fish might enjoy the snack! Unfortunately, not even my plecostomus like ladybugs.

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.
