What's the strangest "plant" in your tank/pond?


Recommended Posts

This isn't as strange as a fig growing in a pond, but it is strange enough.

When I have gone to the North Carolina coast to collect pygmy sunfish in blackwater type swamps I often end up with Utricularia vulgaris, or bladderwort in my bucket. The waters are so nutrient poor that this plant presumably gains nitrogen by being carnivorous and eat will any little aquatic critter that wanders into one of its many traps.
