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

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 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.
