Not sure how it got in the tank,
They told me all they fed was shrimp pellets and algae wafers, along with some veg slices,
Nothing new added for months.
Anyways

I volunteered & tore the whole tank down looking for the problem,
When I showed them this guy they freaked out,
They wondered why the shrimp wasn't reproducing like they was,
Well This guy was very plump from all the easy food.

It looks like a cricket to me, but I don't know that a dragon fly larvae looks like to compare it to.
