Thanks for that link mooncat!! I'm sure most of us will find it useful at sometime or another, although the pic of the planaria looks nothing like the things we had once lol

You would be amazed at how many things call water home that are not fish. In my samples i get upwards of 30 species from a single sweep of my net through some plants!

wow, that's a lot! I expect to find them in a stream, my 7 year old usually finds about 4 or 5 different species when we go pond dipping, but just didn't expect them in my tank!

I had a tank full of little critters i found in the local stream when i was younger Smile. used to keep them for a few days, try and figure out what they were then toss em back.

hope so, she's always creature hunting in general! I used to collect buckets of snails and caterpillars when I was little. We have a pot of painted lady caterpillars on the table at the moment, and a net of ladybirds that we hatched from larvae in the living room. Ladybirds due for release soon, caterpillars about 4 weeks to go.

Not so good at identifying the things we get in streams - bloodworms, daphnia, shrimps, and crayfish I'm ok with, but the others are "oh, another one of those wriggly things/underwater caterpillar-like things", so maybe the list will help us work out what they really are!
