So I have this red Lilly bulb in my Bettas tank and I went to go look for Jumper in his tank and I about died... I'm terrified of bugs and there is this giant shiny gold bug latched onto this bulb... Where did it come from? I'm only 20 and I have a very clean home. We clean all the time but idk how a bug just randomly finds this. And honestly this is the most disturbing bug I have ever seen. It's so shiny (the picture doesn't it do it justice...) has anyone ever had this happen to them??

Is that a moth? Kind of looks like it but the pic. is a little blurry.

If it is, they're attracted to the light.

Ive never had this happen to me but then again ive never bought bulbs.
He could have been transported on the bulb or something else, and was growing and was at the time to small for you to see.

My guess is that its some sort of larvae, or it is a water bug.

It does look like a moth lol, but wouldn't it be trying to get out of the water instead of holding itself under?

....I think it's cute. I would have caught it and kept it haha. That's so cool that he is shiny. I know water bugs have metallic shells but I'm not sure if any species fly...plus I agree that dude looks like a moth. He looks so happy on your plant omnomnom
