    me I would kill it and bin. it may have picked up virus;s / bacteria being in a fish tank that could release new diseases into wild if released into a pond, the UKs wildlife is v vulnerable to alien germs which can decimate native creatures. not a nice thing to do but could kill a lot of wild life if infected

    It's gone to live in my step-dads pond. Went the following morning
    Seems that the pace theta grows the plants that I purchase for the fish tank are grown out doors so it's parents have laid the egg onto the plant an I have imported it into me shrimp tank!
    No wonder it was so big ... chomping shrimp and basking in the warmth! It's gone to eat tadpoles and stickle backs like it's supposed to do .... On the upside I did find out that the bladder snails that we have @Heather2131 can go outside into a pond. But they have to have their water temperature lowered before they get popped out. I am going to be fishing mine out and popping them into a container and slowly lowering the temperature (well at this time of year!) and then they too can begger off to step-dads pond! A cunning plan!

    @Yellowchickenparrot I saw these things called hydra online .... now they look orrible! ... dinky .... but orrible! Weird I like shrimp but they other many legged beasties really don't appeal to me.

    Saw some tropical crab the other day but they need a special tank that they can haul their butts out of the water .... plus not too sure if Henni spotted them she'd be trying to dive in and eat them! She runs after spiders to grab them it's the only time I have to run so I can out pace her and save the spider!

    I like the look of the blue lobsters in my local tropical / marine fish place I'd say they were just a bit bigger than crayfish but they are very aggressive with each other and often fight not so sure I would wan't to keep one alone doesn't seem fair.

    I have two types of snails @DizzyBlue
    Bladder snails and another one that's like a spiral flat shell... I'll have to work out what that one is, but they're already in a jar of cold water and growing haha they're still tiny though
    I haven't got round to taking them to the pond yet

    What does your step dad keep in his pond?

    The flat spiral shell could be a ramshorn snail. Very pretty little things!

    They are pretty, do they breed like mad? I've got a few if it is them

    Dragon fly lava even kills fish nasty you could have got a egg on a plant or arrived in some live food if you have fed them with it only thing you can do remove it change and clean tank out sterilize every thing you can with boiling water wash plants rubbing leaves between your fingers to remove any eggs @Tash x
