little grey/brown flying beetles, look like little tiny junebugs, are living and breeding around my aquarium. they seem to have some pupa, or eggs on the glass at the top of the aquarium. the beetles fly and are attracted to white and to light. dog and cat food could be there food source, but i can think of no other food source. they make think of some kind of weevil. does anyone know what i am dealing with and how i might control them in and around aquarium

RE: beetles

Im not sure what type of creature it is but if you want to get rid of it do a full water change. Thats really the only way to get rid of unwanted creatures. Take out all the fish, snails shrimp anything you want to keep and thoroughly wash all the gravel/ sand plants and anything you think they could be hiding on or have layed eggs on. Then put it all together again and fill it up. Dont forget to put in your water conditioner to get rid of the harsh chemicals in tap water. If they survive that then ...well i dono :P
