Default Plz ID: What... is this?!

Was doing a water change and found this thing!! Long body, three tails, and fangs (?!)....

Haha, looks pretty wild. I find it neat and freaky at the same time.

Would I want to keep it as a pet, lol? Is it dangerous to fish/humans?

Ha! You're right, thanks. I googled, it's a damselfly nymph! Neeeeeat~~ I've never seen it before.

Less creeped out by it now, phew! I always fear what creepy crawlies are in my tank when I reach my hands in it to do water changes and such, hehe

Hahah, I think I will~~ Just to see what happens and if it'll molt and fly... or not. It looks so narly!

Need to research and see what they eat and if I got any of those that were in the tank that kept it alive so far

damselfly indeed.
they can be fed bloodworms, and various other small critters.

maybe helpful in some sections?
