I have an odd bug in one of my tanks-
it looks like a spider... Swims around a lot and hides in the large stands of stargrass.

A picture is impossible- I rarely see it, and it's smaller than a US dime.
It's in my cory tank (soon to have neons and silvertips), so I doubt it could eat any of my fish... It's ignored the two ghost shrimp in the tank (that the cories ignore- lol.)



It's an interesting fella- I may name it. Could be the same as your bug, but it's hard to say since yours is bigger and I don't know what it looks like underwater...

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Well he's fast, and I don't have a quality camera...

I did catch him and place him in a little 1qt tank. Lets see if he survives. (He was in the tank with my cories, and one of the cories is having trouble with his swim bladder. It's unlikely, but perhaps he was stung or bitten or something.)

water striders cant swim i dont think... they just slide on the water's surface tension...

i just found a beetle-like insect in my shrimp tank, it was eating all my plants. Does anyone know what that is? Kinda looked like a pond snail from teh top but it moved fast. I tried to catch it with tweezers but crushed it by accident :-/.
