I can't see it very well either, but I'm almost positive I had one in my tank a while back. It was actually dead though and the shrimp I had in there were eating it so I left it be.

friendy you want to get the damselfly larvae out of the tank soon as in killing them or throwing them in a pond?

damselflys are just skinny dragonflys...and are harmless, unless your a mosquito larvae or a mosquito

I love damselflies ! Please try and save them - they are mosquito eaters, gotta love em ! If there's a pond nearby just put them in - that was a great idea hc8719.

For some reason I was thinking that he had dragonfly larvae in his tank.

This is what the dragonfly larvae in my tank looked like except the ones in my tank were transparent. They will attack and kill small fish.

That's crazy but it still doesn't beat having worm leeches in your tank , it took me a month to get rid of the infestation and it cost me 1 danio which I found it tearing up.

Unfortunately both of them died in the jar I was keeping them in. I have no idea why though.
