Hello, I have this strange creature hanging out in the water part of my Palidarium. Does anyone have any idea what this is and should I be worried? I made a rookie mistake and didn't clean my live plants before placing them and I am already dealing with a snail issue. I hope this isn't another pest. Thank you!

I agree, it looks like a dragonfly nymph. They are voracious predators, and can kill and eat prey as large as they are. They can get pretty big too, couple inches sometimes.
