Looks like a caddisfly larva to me.
I have no idea..
I dunno. .... aquarium gravel??
Apparently, caddis fly larvae are famous for covering themselves in tiny bits of gravel.
And here's a nudie pic:
Might just try AOL image search for
freshwater insect larvae

Are you asking about your religious figure in the background encased in a clear plastic tube?
[Verne I do believe has a firm grasp of underwater creatures. Emerging caddis fly larvae. I suggest you get a trout. [edit: I knew we had a bunch when I lived in Missouri, but Illinois has 184 species of Trichopterans......so just by sheer odds, and it does look them, and you got them in a local pond.....]

I’d go with caddies fly larvae too.
I agree with the larvae. My Oscars ate whatever they were along with all the snails.
