    I noticed this little guy last week, there is some emersed Hydro Japan and Ludwigia now coming from this tank. I noticed this funny little ladybird in the hydro. I thought he was just hanging in there. But over the week he seems to have made my nano his home. Here he is just chillin on the wood.

    Ian are you a mod on a forum that isn't tff now?

    I think this is a harlequin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmonia_axyridis
    if so, the general consensus amongst most gardeners I've come into contact with is "squish 'um" with being an invasive.

    yes mate, TTF was sold off and the main admin wasn't involved, long story, but i gave up there. It was becoming a ball ache there as well TBH.

    also, yes it has been ID'd by an expert and apparently they aren't as invasive as once thought.

    this is from the expert.

    Yeah I'd been over that way to see how things were looking lately and read up on Killifish and to be honest it seemed to me that every post was "why are my plants dead" or "what is this algae" Can't search, won't search questions again and again.

    Good to read some extra info. The RHS have been saying kill on sight till recently when they started saying they're already too well established to prevent them now.
