U. aurea - Just a few pics to share
Thread Started on Sept 9, 2007, 12:04am
The bladders for this species is quite big and the leaves are nice looking...compared to U. gibba at least.

The bladders.


I was watching this snail very closely. Kinda worried it'll get sucked in.


But basically, it went round the circumference of the bladder. Btw, Snail Junior is slightly larger than a fullstop. I could only see a black dot moving and it was with the camera that I could tell it was a baby snail!


This bladder sucked in air!

So weird and cute. i love pictures of CPs up close and personal. Cindy, how big are the bladders? 3mm or bigger? Hmmm, maybe I'll get myself some Ultris and try again.

Yes, yes, I wan, I wan. I'm thinking of putting them in the huge tray of water where I place my Sundews in since I also have a hose pumping air into it. Hmm, or maybe place in a small tank. By the way, what is the name of the species you have in your planted tank? Last Edit: Sept 27, 2007, 11:05pm by David Link to Post - Back to Top LoggedMy Wantlist cactustts

TS, I am very poor at ID. But my guess is of course, U. aurea.

Thanks Naj, Hongrui and Cindy for providing the names, with those names I could find & compare the plants much easier. After comparing the flower with the photos here, it looks more like a U. gibba.

Yes Robert, they could be seen everywhere in ponds, lakes or drains in Malaysia.

One question tho'. Those traps that are black in colour are dead traps or just filled with food? Man TS, took me so long to wash them. I think alot damage too. Can't seem to wash of all the broken stems/leaves/traps. At the end I stop washing them as I think the process damaged them.

O dear, you must have taken two hours instead of one! The utrics looked sooooooo clean, you used bleach urh? hehe. Hey Cindy, I think those are micro organisms trapped in the bladders ler. Because I got the utrics from a pond instead of my own planted tank, hehe. That pond fulled of water lilies, lotus, aquatic plants, fishes and alot of micro organisms too.

Not only full of those stuff TS said but also full of MUD! Yaa man! can't remember how long it took me, but it seems forever and so tideos,... pouring water in, rinsing, pouring out, pouring in, rinsing, pouring out, ... over and over and over gain...

Another question guys... U thin it is ok to let the whole bunch together like that or should I thin them out so that it is not so crowded to start with?

Hopefully they grow well. This tank is under artificial lights and I pump air into the water. Just worried that algae will grow soon and chock the ultris. Any suggetion to prevent algae... hmm, perhaps by leaving the whole bunch in there, that would prevent algae from growing on the ultris. What do you guys think?

They grow in that way in the wild. And I discovered that they flower only when they are crowded and steady.

If the whole surface is covered with the plant, I don't think the algae will grow anymore - no light for photosynthesis. I changed my planted tank's water every week to avoid algae growth. But make sure you use chlorine free water.

Ok TS. At the moment they're in RO water. Will continue with that then.

By the way, I've decided not to put my crown tail beta in the tank with them. Too difficult to maintain and have to keep changing water so that amonia o not buid up.

David, how do we feed these things in captivity ? i had some once but gave up...liked them more for their flowers rather than their carnivorous nature & it didn`t feel quite right. Heheh.

Have not done that before Tarence. Most probably will buy daphnia or sea monkeys and try. Jalan Pudu fish shops sells them.

Feed daphia. Not sea monkeys because they are hatched in salt water.

Unless you rinse them first with fresh water but that's very troublesome because you'll need a very fine mesh.
