Urgent Help - Plant eating larvae

Hi,

This morning i found a larvae eating my plants. Can you help my identify it ? my water plant shop reseller haven't seen this in the past.

Its about 1 inch long, and transparent.(not green like in picture)

when i removed it from water, it shrank and lost its internal water.

I dont have any fish in the tank yet. I started it only 10 days ago.

I assume it was a hitchhiker on one of the plants and therefore i can expect more.

If so, i want to know if its dangerous to fish as well as eating my plants....

i was planing to add fish in two weeks but would like to do a water treatment in advance if necessary.



thanks
David
