    I need suggestions on what sort of SMALL plants/animals I can put into the aldrovanda container to keep nutrients/algae down. I tried w/ daphnia but they all died (eaten)? Anything that would be good?

    I grow my aldrovanda in a two gallon $5 plastic tank, in it I include a botom of long fibered sphagnum moss and I added a small guppy, a snail (NOT THE ONES YOU FIND IN A POND!) and a population of daphnia and Ostracods. You feed them yeast and they will live.

    a pond. thats where they usually come from. LFS at the bottom is needed to keep the CO2 up that aldrovanda needs.

    How does the LFS keep the CO2 up if its submurged? May I see some pictures? This sounds interesting. This is one of the genuses I haven't aquired and tried yet.
