    wild aquatic?

    My brothers and me went to a lake today to get plants for a tank. When I notised something in my bag and it was a canivorous aquatic. I have no idea witch one it is, but i porduses what looks like all closed flytrap style. I havee them in a small tank of distilled water at the moment. What species could they be?

    I will try. No, not aldrovanda. It doesn't really have closing and opening traps, but the shape of the round trap have that shape of a closed venus flytrap. The pics. will probly be your best bet though.

    Were there any flowers? If so.. if you post what color they were, someone could probably ID it for you.

    Also, that link doesn't work for me.
