I love finding new things in my tank, and with a four-year-old, I usually don't get too surprised as to what I find in my tank, but this is a bit much.

I am new to the Texas Hill Country. There are critters around here that I am just not used to. I took my kiddo to bed, and I have to pass my aquarium in the process, and this guy was not there.

What is it that is on my EcoTech Marine VorTech MP40 pump you ask? That would be centipede that is about 10" long!

I am watching TV, and I could see these antennas flapping around, and in the back of my head, I thought that maybe something died and got stuck on the VorTech pump. I quickly got up to find out that I was right, but it was not a fish that got stuck. Took a few minutes for me to get him out of the tank but I knew I had to do it soon how they are venomous. 

These guys are mean and attack anything that moves, one of these guys chased my father in law up the driveway. I don't know if he found a water source and was trying to take a drink or if he saw a fish and decide it could be a good meal to go after. 

What is the strangest thing you have found in your tank?
