I was in the middle of doing a wc this morning when I popped open 1 of my canister filters I had about 20 of these little guys living in it somehow!!!

I truly have no idea! Maybe she laid them under the intake? Or they hatched and got sucked up? Haha! I have no clue! But a few of them are 1/2" Atleast! Don't know how long it takes to get to that size.
