Hi Welcome to FishLore!
Possibly a damsel fly nymph. I don't think dragon fly but I could be wrong. I'm sure other will be along soon to help.

Are the dangerous? I have alot mystery snails, some baby bristlenose pleco, a couple adult angels and Ballon belly Molly
They are dangerous to small fish, so they might pose a threat to your baby BNs if they are under half an inch long or so.

Thank you for all the replys! I read online you can kill off these pest by raising the temp to 83 degrees for a few days? I already keep my tank at 80.would everyone in the tank be OK with that temp? (angels, bristlenose pleco, mystery snails and Balloon belly Molly)

I've honestly never heard about that method, but you could always net out the intruder - it's a bit more direct. Your fish would be okay with that temp if you did want to try that method, you just have to be sure to raise the temperature slowly.
