Found about 8-10 of these little $hits and thought I had them all killed, but yesterday found a devil monster from the 8th level of hell swimming around in the dark. I am trying to start a shrimp colony and this will not be a good place for them in my heavily planted tank. I've read all of the threads and nobody really has a solution other than finding them individually. I read another post about suffocating them with c02. As such, I've been running c02 since this morning non-stop. I only have plants right now. Anybody have a solution to rid me of these nasty little vermin?

Are we talking about a damselfly nymph? That common name isn't something I've ever heard of.
