Handy, Dandy, Duckweed Remover
Someone has likely made one of these, but I've never seen a pic of it, so here's a pic of mine. I removed the netting from a fish net and replaced it with a piece of women's nylon hosery.
The nylon is stretched over the wire and tied. You just need to get the nylon soaked in the tank water and skim the duckweed to one end of the tank and drop underneath the weed you've collected and remove it. I knock the skimmer against the inside of a 5 gallon bucket and rinse the bucket out in the sink. The weed goes into the garbage disposal and is ground up. Nothing to clog the pipes or grow somewhere in the plumbing.
The little skimmer tool works great.
"Fear not my child, just change the tank water."
