Hehe, don't mind the going off topic!

Meanwhile I was able to find an awesome website (Checklist of the Collembola of the World), where I was able, after emailing the guys (They are PhD biologists from a Belgium University and they dedicate only to this bugs) to identify my bug, which is this one 12-02-27 374A - Sminthurides malmgreni | Flickr - Photo Sharing! .

They also indicated they they are totally harmless and they are an indicator of an healthy and ecologically balanced filter and environment.

So everything is cool!

Thanks for you cooperation! ;)

And stay safe of Spanish inquisition, hehe.

Regards!

That's good to know, thanks for passing that on. Now I know if they show up I don't have to panic.
