Halobate or sea skater.

Insects have had incredible results on the land out of the metazoans of which means their body becomes fixed as they age as with this insect.
These guys are one of the few insects that has colonised the only area of the ocean by insects, its called the sea-air interface!
There are roughly 5 species of this insect or bug you might call them and all of them spend all of their life at the oceans sea-air interface.
This one lives in my top tub and sits out of the water on the tubs exit when not feeding.
I love the way changes its shading.
