Hi guys,

I found this stange "bug" in my tank last night and was removed straght away, this morning my Otocinclus was dead and my shrimps taking care of the body.

Does anyone know what this strange insect is?

Not sure but it doesnt look aquatic. Have you got a pic after you removed it.

I didnt take one after i removed it.

But it was like a thick ant/spider hybrids haha. Moved fairly quickly too.

Ever see Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? The part where Indy and Short Round are gonna get crushed by that ceiling caving in? That bug in the film you had, was a smaller version of one of those bugs! >_< D-: OMG...!
