It looks more like the first shot. There's still some out there, haven't broken the tubs down yet. I'll get a shot. Other than the flower stalks, nothing is at the waters surface, which is part of what made me think gibba. It is very small.

You could try bringing some of it in to overwinter in a small jar on a windowsill! I'd be glad for a sample at the next NJAGC meeting you go to. Daphnia would be appreciated by your U. gibba. Even some infusoria. They might even be able to catch baby Bettas.
I have some in a pretty glass vase on my windowsill, though i have been thinking of moving it into my fishtanks. I recently saw it listed as a "pest plant" in an aquarium gardening book. Apparently they are really hard to get rid of in tanks.

Don't put it in your tanks. It can be a pain to get rid of. I have mine in a nano jar on my western facing window. I'm going to move some of it outdoors to the saucers my CP are in. Maybe it will control mosquito larvae.
