Came from the plants somewhere. lol. Egg sack maybe. They don't eat plants, they will eat dying leaves though on a plant or algae on a plant. I keep them in my shrimp tanks, let them eat the extra food the shrimp don't, eat a dying leave before it can decompose, keep the glass clean, etc. The problem with assassins is once you get them, and they eat all your snails, then you have to get rid of them or get more assassins for them to eat. lol. And once in a while, not often, very rare, but an assassin can attack and kill and freshly molted shrimp. Not a bit deal if it was low grade cherry, bummer if its a $300 blue bolt. lol.
