    ID needed in my shrimp tank: Utricularia?

    I had a friend over and he said, who look at all of the bladderwort in my shrimp tank.

    I just thought that this was some type of algae. I leave it into the tank, since the Blue tiger shrimp seems to like it, or at least don't mind it. It also grows very fast. For reference the tiger shrimp just about an inch or slightly larger.

    Can anyone ID this?








    Thank you,
    Steverd

    We usually need the flower to identify...But then again, someone else might know.

    So far it has never flowered. Maybe I'll increase the light and see if it will flower.
    So do you think it's some type of Bladderwort?

    I also would not want money, but if I could trade for butterworts or sundews it would
    be great. Do you think anyone would be interested? Would it be worth posting in the trade forum?

    Thanks,
    Steverd
