Creature ID please #1
I took some Elodea (I think) from my garden pond that I had thrown in there a few months back but has taken over and dipped it in fresh water to clean it to put in a spare tank indoors.
I found a lot of these creatures in the remaining water (along with the typical collection of snails), I'm suree they are not uncommon as they are just out of a UK pond but can someone tell me what they are ?
