Re: [Live-foods] Chaoborus americanus

Bill's description fits very closely to Chaoborus americanus or another Chaoborus species if he is not in North America. This larva of the phantom midge is sold as "glass worms" for fish food. It does take a larger fish to eat them and the glass work is capable of turning the tables on smaller fish. Glass worms hang midwater in order to sink and capture daphnia and other small foods. Hydra look like small transparent anenomes and attach to surfaces.
