I found this in my Hercules beetle rearing tank. It is a fungus nat. I’m concerned it might affect my beetles. There was also a fungus nat larvae covered in fungi. Is my tank ok? Here a picture. https://ibb.co/VxJ9K1Q

Per my understanding, most entomopathogenic fungi are highly specialized. That does not look like entomopathogenic fungi to me, yet, even if that is indeed what it is, it is unlikely to jump from a fungus gnat to a coleopteran.
