    Confirmed, I had 3 of these, they're blighters. :twisted:

    I found that they came to the front of the tank when it was completely dark.... which usually meant I ended up trying to catch them after I'd got back from the pub/cinema/theatre etc. :oops:

    Good luck with disposing of them :?

    I had one of these. Managed to catch it :D

    How do they get in the tank in the first place?

    When a mummy dragonfly and a daddy dragonfly get together... ;)

    No, I'd imagine when the plants are grown in whichever nurseries they are more than likely outdoors, so open to insects laying eggs on them.
