I opened the lid to my tank and saw these little bugs sitting on one of my plans that grew to the surface. Not sure what they are. I assume my fish will eat them but I have no idea where they came from.

I kind of see the legs maybe some kind of underwater insect? They seem larger and more advanced then the average parasite.

Ya it’s just strange how they just appeared one day. They’re obviously not dumb either because they haven’t entered the water yet, they just sit on top of that one leaf
