    In my experience it is pretty important to put branches into the aquarium, because they definitely need something to hold onto while being on the surface. Believe it or not, the breeding process seems pretty manageable actually. I only had bigger larva, which started to prey on fish, frogs or softer shelled insects, but basically anything I offered them. Once they stop feeding and wander around the tank without a clear goal (they are huge at this point), you have to take them out and put them in fairly wet substrate where they will pupate. Larva and the beetles themselves are cannibalistic, so should you actually start a fun breeding project, watch out for that. The adults feed on absolutely everything, i mostly offered Grasshoppers, but anything will do really. Greetings from germany :)

    Hey Petko. Bevore you run around, filming how you catch and keep an Argyroneta aquatica ("diving bell spider") Those spider are highly endangered and in many many countries it's absolut forbidden to catch and keep this spiders. I don't know for Croatia, but here in Switzerland it would be an veeeeery expensive PLtoolssvideo ;). An even when it's legal in Croatia.... think about your influence! How many would copycat that and start searching for this Spider. Please, let those higly endangered and Spider in the nature. Greetings

I forgot about the T-shirt as a gift for staying with you for over a year, and I would still really like to get it please ? It was so stupid not to check first but my mum has just died and her funeral is tomorrow so I’m not in the right frame of mind ! Can you let me know how I can get in contact about this please ?

    I used to harvest couples of dytiscus marginalis as a young teenager in France, even did mating with 2 of them, they were so crazy about food, I swear they are crazy predators, they were fascinating. Also the difference between male and female isn't only on the back, the male have adhesive palms on his front leg to keep himself on the back of female during mating :D

    I'ld recommend you don't bother with big filtration systems. Hang on back (or backpack-) filters work really fine with small(-ish) aquariums. They dont take up any actual space in the aquarium and need less maintenance than big outside systems (also less expensive).

    I am so, so excited and happy to see a Great Diving Beetle! My mom found a male one last March but sadly he died in the summer. He had suction cup feet in the front for holding onto the female during mating! He was brown. Something great about them is they don't need a filter for their aquarium! Also they have a nasty, venomous bite, so watch out for that. It liquifies the innards of the small fish, insects, mealworms, whatever you feed it! They eat dried bloodworms too but we couldn't find the right ones. Lots of info on Google! Also she will want to be able to come out of the water and sit on something sometimes. They store air under their wings so they can dive for a long time, and they get the air by sticking their bum out of the water and hanging there, teehee 🤭 it's so cute. Most of what we learned was trial and error. Anyway, I hope you see this and that it helps you in some way! We named our beetle Shrek, maybe yours can be Fiona.
