While feeding fish this morning we've found a small approx 1/2 inch long green stick insect type creature, it has large white "goggly" eyes and a very thin narrow body and 6+ legs. At the end of its tail it has three spike like bits sticking out, tried to take a picture but couldn't get focus correct. Just dubious in case it may be harmful to the other fish, anybody any ideas!!??!!
so far no idea what it good be... if youhavent done so already, can you remove it anyway, put it in a little pot or something? would be good to work out what it is, to work out how it got there, how strange!

Thanks guys, from the picture link it looks identical to the mayfly nymph. Only thing that now concerns is checked in tank now and it's dead!! Should I be concerned that it may have laid eggs or is that likely to be the end of it, forgive my ignorance but figure better off asking what I don't know rather than make mistakes!!
