Speaking of hard-to-get-rid-of plants, I have a hairgrass tank in which
maybe one or two tiny pieces of Utricularia Gibba must have gotten by me when
I planted it. Now it's spreading in the not yet fully grown-in hairgrass,
and I get the feeling it's there to stay- it's very difficult to remove all
of it because it breaks so easily when you pull it out. Today I used a comb
to remove the bulk of it. As I stood there combing the hairgrass I had to
laugh about the things we end up doing for our tanks.
It's a nice little plant which I liked with another mix of plants that I
had before (especially because my rummy-noses really like to gobble up the
strands, and I figure it is good for them- they search for it and graze on it
all day long nowadays), but I don't think I will like it if it becomes part
of the whole carpet-I was looking forward to a pure hairgrass effect. Will I
have to learn to live with it, or is there a way of controlling it besides a
regular salon treatment?
