I can answer that for you.. It's called Utricularia graminifolia aka. "UG".

It's a carnivorous species which feeds on small lifeforms in the water column by trapping them in it's little trappy things.. haha. No idea what they're called. Mouths? Hands?

Did you get that at Albany Aquarium by any chance? I haven't been there in a while but I remember they had these tanks in 3 or 4 different sizes.

if it werent for the equipment (drop checker, CO2 diffuser, intake, etc) to show me the scale of the tank, id think it were MUCH larger. like 20 gallons or so.
you did an AWESOME job with this tank.

hi all...it's been a while since i've been around. sorry for letting this thread die, and leaving questions unanswered, but i think you guys have done fine without me and i've come back to resurrect it!

@talontsiawd: never heard of albany aquarium. i guess that means another road trip!

getting to the down and dirty, the tank has been running on minimal demands. recently dropped a few iron tabs into the downoi region and can see notable green coloration almost immediately. :P my CO2 paintball canister ended up with a broken valve, and i never got around to replacing it, devastating the eglaria . the downoi seems to not mind about the absence of CO2 supplementation as long as it gets its high lighting and iron fix. not to mention im getting a lot of dirt debris (dont really know what to call it) settling all over the tank, leaves, rocks, especially after a water change. i try vacuuming it but it seems to magically reproduce--which is a special type of frustration as vacuuming could be easy accidentally destroy the hardscape if i was careless.

anywho, thanks for listening to me complain a bit. here's an update as a thanks.
