Bladderword in my aquarium!

Why would you want to keep it? Sounds like it could be harmful to your fish? No?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

i have some too. Its harmless. The traps are a mm wide max. All it does is trap the micro organisms you can barely even see. I have it in two tanks and it has yet to be a problem. I keep sundews as well, another carnivorous plant, but non-aquatic.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

I wouldn't keep it in a tank with tiny fry, but other than that it's harmless.

Probably can just treat it like duckweed or any other floating plant.
If you ever get some live daphnia or cyclops for your fish, know that the plant will enjoy it just as much.

Yeah me neither, but there was a bag of it sold at the last auction I went to. I bought some plants there. Something I got must of been from the same seller.

Can you move aquarium decorations around in a established aquarium? ShawnMcc Freshwater and Tropical Fish 6 06-02-2009 12:41 PM
