you sure what you got is U. Gibba? It's a very very very pesky aquatic plant which is almost impossible to get rid of if you introduce it to your tank with other plants, it's simply too hardy, striving in lowlight condition till high lighting condition, found in water that range from cooling to heaty, they simply grow non stop and will tangle around other aquatic plant...

If it really is U. gibba, you don't need to worry: the plant is almost immortal. It will take any kind of abuse you can throw at it and come out on top. You can take a small container of water, chuck it in, place in a reasonably bright area and watch it fill the container in no time flat. I'm still trying in vain to get rid of the stuff...but everytime I start a new setup, it somehow gets there without me putting it in. ARGH.
