Different aquatic invertebrates are used to understand the quality of water of the aquatic body. Chironomids are considered as the most suitable invertebrate for this purpose with time. This insect has an important position in the aquatic food chain as well as a food web, because of its occupancy as a secondary consumer in the aquatic ecosystem. This insect has a benthic habitat and used the sedimentary and benthic debris as food. They also make their tube with these materials. Chironomids are also known as bloodworm, due to hemoglobin present in the body fluid and give them red in appearance.
