At least this helped to weed out unwanted plants in my tank and clean the substrate a bit. Hope that's the end of it

Video that I found on youtube: Damselfly larva devours a small fish - YouTube
That video was disturbing. I am naturally a little squeamish so I forced myself to watch it. But I was just so sickened the poor fry had to live while his body was devoured. I can't imagine the excruciating pain.

Nature has no limits on its beauty nor brutality. Thanks for the link.
