Water bug in my planted tank?

I noticed a black water bug(insect) about 2 weeks ago and I tried to catch but no luck. This morning I saw the water bug again but it is transparent now, does anyone now what is it? Is it harmful to my palnted tank?
Thanks

there are many bugs that are ok in your tank and a few bad ones. See if you can get a pic or a better discription of the bug.

I tend to just worry about big bugs and those that are parasitic. I do have some tiny bugs in my tanks, but I like them. they pretty much function like snails eating excess junk...and provide live food to the fish
