So for those who do not know I had decided to take some water, plants and critters from the lake here to see if they would live in an aquarium. And, yes, yes they do. I now have them in a 20 gallon after having them in a big bin to get them slowly used to aquarium water, then conditioned tap water.
What I found (pictures not included);
red ticks, I think.
black ringed red worms - the size of day old and week old fry.
white larvae with a black head
a few others
a predator! xD He uses hollowed out wood as his hiding spot/shell. I found him when I saw a hunk of water logged wood scuttle off
I picked him up, and felt the wood "pulsing" with movement. A little black ringed worm spiralled out, and then a head peeked out! He has six legs, used to snatch prey who unexpectedly land or swim by the piece of wood. I thought it was just a bug who decided to be smart, but I also found another one (dead). He is a golden light brown color, with black speckling on his head! He blends into the wood... the other end of the wood he uses xD food in ONE hole and OUT the other hahaha
The other critter shown, has three "tails" that seem "feathered", he has six legs, antennas... um.... there's many of them o_o Cool looking! Babies from 3 week old betta fry size, to adults about an inch. Green and light brown are their colors.
