I was reading a different thread here called "Bug" and it turns out to be a crustacean.

Upon reading about the crustacean, " Aquarists worldwide are showing increasing interest towards asellus aquaticus as a low-maintenance freshwater aquarium pet and tank cleaner. While often sold as live food for other fish, some keepers in the US and Germany have started selectively breeding asellus aquaticus to be sold as pets, usually from online platforms like eBay."

I found this part interesting and started me thinking down a certain line of thought adding to the Walstad Method in attempting to create a self contained ecosystem in an aquarium. What type of critters that could be used to provide live food for fish, but also help to maintain the aquarium and last will breed enough to maintain a decent population but not over run the aquarium.
