    so i was misting the bromeliad in walter's cage(my new nosey be) and i saw a little shadow squirming in between the yellow bromeliad leaves. I kept spraying and it crawled out. I tried to get it out but it crawled back in before i could.

    It was small, looked a tan/brown color with stripes almost like the colors of a lesser mealworm with dark ends. It was a soft squirmy type. Crawled like a maggot or worm, but didn't quite look like one. Has me freaked out now

    On further research it's these. I read they are common in broms and are good plant food?

    Looks like fungus gnat larvae. Harmless.
