Hey all! So, over the past few weeks I've noticed some unique "molts" on the surface on some of my tanks, especially above the pond themes and ecospheres. I've always been curious of these but thought that maybe whatever insect emerged somehow escaped my fish room and out the doors! Well, tonight I was doing my usual, watching fish videos and relaxing, when I spotted a little...thingy, for lack of a better word, moving around on the head of my bed. Of course, being the invertebrate nerd that I am, I decided to take a pic and look around for the specific species. Well all, this little guy definitely looks like a Midge....of some sort! I decided to do research on these little insects and, apparently, people HATE Midges, saying how annoying, blood-sucking little buggers they are (pun most definitely intended)! And though I personally want the pets and I to be safe, I also don't want to hurt any little organisms if I don't have to! So, if you may, comment, ask questions, tell facts, tips, or tricks about Midges, whether they will overpopulate my fish room, whether I absolutely need to kill or get rid of them, and if they're something to worry about! Any info on this subject will be very much appreciated! Thank you very much, all!
