A couple of months ago I started seeing something growing out of my JavaMoss, it didn't really concerned me at first but now I'm seeing more and more of it all over my shrimp tank, I don't know if it's another plant or some kind of algae...

Can you ID it?

Long stringy growth with pods that pop open into something like a spore...pic'd just above these shrimp growing out of the moss...

Oh jeez, I have that stuff too. I pull it out as soon as I see it, but it always pops up somewhere else. If its really stuck on a plant I just trim off that particular leaf or stem and throw it out.

Looks really cool, actually. Kind of like ivy but somehow 'alien.'

Utricularia is a neato genus. I doubt any shrimp could be harmed by it. It eats things that are about copepod size. (2 mm and smaller)
