The weirdest/creepiest uninvited guest in your tank?

I've been working on setting up a 20 gallon for a few weeks. After hearing a few stories about plant hitch-hikers, I decided to keep the tank fish-free for while and make sure I got all the "guests" out.

It's been a month, and I'm still finding little critters. The other day, I saw a tiny leech inching across the glass.



What kinds of unwanted creatures have you guys found in your tanks?

Copepods.

Most things that hitchhike in are pretty harmless..They can be a little annoying though.

Nice. I'm actually afraid of leeches, so it was a bit of an adventure for me.

I screamed like a girl, but just backed away like 5 feet. Then I made my dad kill it.

I once came back from the store to find that a cockroach had figured out how to wear a bubble as a helmet and was swimming around down in the tank.

He didn't live long after I turned the light on, my girls are notoriously brutal to non-fish... they kill a plant per week on average.

Weird! Interesting, too, though.
