As for duckweed, I hope you are in for a serious commitment in terms of scooping out handfuls of duckweed every so often. As for me, I find it much, much easier than trimming most plants. As long as you don't let the duckweed get to the point where it chokes light, you'll be fine.

Aesthetically, I love the way it grows and bunches on the surface. It's also been known to be a tasty snack for some of my fish. you'd do well to have this in an ACF tank! Although you should consider semi terrestrial frogs and lilypads instead!
I was thinking amazon frogbit, but I am still trying to locate some. It has a nice look to it.

Such a coincidence, I'm looking for frogbit myself. I found a good ROAK right here on these forums!

If you do manage to get one of those sandwich bags, you should share it with me.

I PM'd him first and he said he had a couple left. Do you want to just get one from him or would you prefer to split a sandwich bag? It's a small amount but in a couple weeks it'll double, if not triple!
