    I always find them in any type of floss if it's in my system, along with a bunch of other bugs.

    Well now that my tank is doing ok. I just found a hitch hiker in my purple rock. When i get too close it pulls himself in like a feather duster. I never had a duster in here..but it kind of fans out and hides when i get close
