    Jerry,
    I take it since you were asking about fish a few posts ago you mean aquatic. I have had success with U. aurea and U. inflata in my 40 gallon tank.....Until I got into discus late last year. My tanks temp is set to 83 degrees now, which the Utricularias were not able to handle along with my hornwort.
    They did grow good when my temp was set to 76 degrees. I have 2 watts per gallon. Hagen Aqua-glo lights.

    Your welcome Jerry.
    I do not think that they would catch livebearer fry. The traps are small. Most of my other fish ate the fry. I would recommend using a trap for the mother to give birth in. That was your fry are safe till they are large enough to place in the tank with the other fish.
