So I have been seeing what I thought was the dead body of an insect floating at the top of my water. I just assumed it was a bug that got trapped under the lid so I'd take it out. Now I think it was actually molts. I was looking at my tank and saw what im pretty sure was a dragonfly nymph. It was on a leaf i grabbed my net and when i tried to catch it it crawled off and i couldn't find it. Im not sure how to get rid of it but even worse i have my shrimp coming in in like a week. right now it's just bladder snails and plants in the tank. Does anyone know anything i can do to get rid of this(these?) thing(s)? This is the first time I've noticed it and it's pretty freaking big like maybe inch and a half. Also I couldn't get a picture sorry.
So I've taken everything out of my tank and caught like 6 or 7 of these. Im pretty sure they are dragonfly nymphs. But im worried now because there's so many I can't be sure I got them all. I don't want to kill all the snails in my tank is there anything i can do that will kill the nymphs and not the snails. Also is it possible there are still eggs or would they have all hatched by now?
