Yes but they are harmless. They are like bladderworth. PITA to remove from your tank. If you have a small piece in the tank, they will survive and grow. Usually trapped in extremely hard places to find. I had to throw away plants are contaminated to get rid of them. I have been fight this for 3 years in my tank. I think I finally got rid of it by removing all plants that had it. Usually you have two solutions: 1st meticuleously remove it and keep it until it is all gone... double check... triple check... and recheck or redo your tank by totally breaking it down. I would've break down my tank except it is 180gal... too much PITA. Good Luck!
