Can anyone out there identify this plant? I foundIMG_0014.JPGIMG_0017.JPGIMG_0019.JPG it in my planted tank growing amongst some java moss. I had some in a bucket of java moss and it gradually took over completely. I have to continually remove it manually from my tank. It breaks easily and I can never remove it all. My closest guess is maybe some kind of bladderwort .

It does look like bladderwort but I'm not sure how to easily remove it because it does break easily.

Yes, a type of bladderwort and in guppy or fry tank these can catch your fry. Unfortunately it’s just a case of manually removing what you can which in dense plants can be a nightmare.

Yes. That's why I was concerned. I have cherry shrimp in this tank and thought that the babies might get caught in it. Thanks.
