Can't really tell from the pick, but most likely the larva of an insect. I'd probably remove it if you have any fish or shrimp in your tank. If not leave him be and see what he turns into!

Yes. If it is reported, we remove it. If it is excessive, we hand out infractions. It's in the TOC.

And it does look like a nymph of some sort, almost like a dragonfly. Get it out as they eat smaller fish/shrimp. Or you could just wait until it grows up and flies out.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.
