Re: [APD] tiny plant

Hmmm, could be a reason not to keep small tanks ;-)

I agree that it sounds like bladderwort.  This is a carnivorous plant  that 
is quite common in FL and often hitchhikes in on other floating  plants.  The 
genus is Utricularia.  Those little round bumps are  actually hollow bladders 
which, when triggered, suck in tiny things like small  daphnia and tiny fry. 
IMO, as long as you have no tiny fry in the tank, it is  harmless, and can be 
attractive in small tanks.
