Smile Strangest thing found in filters?

Was cleaning out the Cascade 1000 on the Axolotl tank last night and found 15 little 1/2" marbled crayfish wedged down in the bottom under all the trays. Perfectly healthy and kicking! No clue how long they been in there. Has only been the one crayfish in that tank this whole time. Never noticed him(her?) carrying eggs at any point.

What's YOUR strangest/coolest filter find?

I remember someone found a kuhli loach one time.

I found a earthworm living happily in my filter floss in my canister.

Nothing really, I don't have anything that could slip into the filters other than shrimp lol but I have a piece of foam over the filter so they couldn't anyway. Doesn't get very exciting for me other than fish poop.

I once found a small colony of cherry shrimp living happily in my filter.

What are scuds? They sound like a bar of soap.
