What kind of plant is this?


I have this odd looking something growing in with some floating moss in one of my tanks. A single strand of it looks like green zig-zaggy hair with little bubbles on the points of the zigzags. I'm thinking it may be some sort of carnivorous something or other. The bubbles appear too small to eat anything larger than a cyclop, I hope, because there are lots of shrimp in this tank.

Some pics:

It's Utricularia gibba. It won't get any bigger than that. Usually considered a pest plant.

Thanks for the answers. I have looked it up on the net. Guess I should try to get rid of it.
