never seen that before but if it is anudi get it out, when they start they never stop:(
What do you mean when they start they never stop?
What damage can it do...?
I'll take some more pics tonight.
I never thought i'll get something that you guys don't know;) . (i'm so proud of my self:yeahdude: )

For now i'll keep it in the tank - so far so good. Will remove as soon as i get more positive ID and if it really needs to get out.

I've got this little dude from Port Edward pools.....(I know - first find out what it is before you get it, but i just couldn't resist myself on this one)

I don't think it is it...The reason why I say so is because of my little dude's back...
There is that stuff growing on it, and a weird looking "pit" on its back.
It is quite big as well - fit in the palm of my hand (well allmost)

If you read Calfo's book, you'll see it is the same thing, unfortunately too lazy to type everything
