    Found these guys in my pond the other day. They look alot like they could be some type of crustacean or insect (most probably crustacean). I feed them to my silver gars and they absolutely love them. PM me if you want a clearer video or photo. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Also mosquito larvae - well, actually when they're bulkier like that, they're pupae. They will soon emerge as adults.

    They're still very nutritious fish food, though.
