 Re: what is this ?

EAP! i know what that is. It's a dragonfly larvae! I would take it out your tank as soon as possible as they live under the water in that stage of metamorphis, and sometimes they can live for anything up to four years before turning into dragonflies! and they grow really big and can eat small fish!

Lol, i knwo this because i was an insect geek when i was little and my dad use to take me fishing and ponddipping when i was younger heh!

Heres a pic... Resized Image

Oh i'm new btw... just thought i'd let you know this first as im not suprised its eating your fry, their vicious larvae!!

woah tt came out of your fish?! Are you sure? Well maybe i am wrong then... That sounds very unusual.

I've never heard of dragonfly larvae living inside fish before... How big is the 'larvae'? It looks really big on the screen but guppies are tiny.. Is there such things as fish parasites then maybe?
