Here's some of my photos of...
Of these interesting underwater predators that occasionally hitchhike on plants.
That's how I dealt with mine.
Headless Mayfly Nymphs
Dragonfly Nymph I minced up for the fish. Their mouths were too small so I had to assist. I have no idea what the little white eggs are in the last photo.
Rob.... that freshwater spider looking crab is a "Thai micro-crab?"

The picture in this thread is actually of a dragonfly nymph, while yours were damselfly nymphs (same insect order but different families). The dragonfly nymphs are bigger, and I'll betting the adult dragonflies don't lay as many eggs as do the damselflies. Damselflies are pretty prolific.

|trueblu8||Yeah you'd have to keep them in another tank.|

|creekbottom||I had read that a nymph could stay that way for up to 2 years! I don't think my shrimp would last that long.|
|02-19-2013 08:25 AM|
|trueblu8||Lol. Just feed them until they become a dragonfly. Then let them fly around the house or release them into the wild.|

|creekbottom||Ugh!! those things are so creepy looking! I had to pull one out of my shrimp tank too... gross!!!|
