    That's U. gibba? I wonder what the prolific bladderwort weed infesting my tropical aquarium is, then? Hmm.... I always assumed it was gibba, but it doesn't look like that pic. It's very long and stringy, hardly ever branches. I thought it was a weird type of algae for the longest time, and kept trying to get rid of it, but it somehow always comes back. It will attach to a plant or something and then just grow, straight out horizontally, with occasional nodules (which i now realize are traps) on an otherwise featureless "stem". Any ideas?
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    Yes, they should have alot of daphnia. If you look at the traps closely, it looks like alot of them have daphnia trapped inside of them... Spec, those are daphnia, right?

    Actually, all I have in there is distilled water and daphnia, that's all you need. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]


    Ceph_Giant- Yup, those are daphnia in the traps. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
