Anyone know what the heck this thing is... should I be worried???

Dragon fly nymph, chuck it. Don't leave it in the tank, it is predatory.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

Some nymphs can reach over 3". The large ones prey upon small fish and tadpoles in the wild.
