    I've had luck with them in my aquariums. I acquired them through some aquarium plant purchases as tag-alongs. If their is plenty of light, and the fish don't mess with them (mine never do so, big cichlids or goldfish might though) you should be fine. The stuff can actually be a problem for me sometimes, it tends to wrap plants up.

    Well, the stuff I've been trying to grow since summer is sheathed in algae. I'm going to get some Daphnia and see if that will control the algae. I'd try snails but I'm afraid they might eat the U. gibba.

    I have some snails that coexist with U. gibba. They're gray and about the size of this smiley face:

    Unfortunately they don't eat the algae in sufficient amounts, so they're not really all that helpful...
