Smitty06 It will grow fast like other floaters, but it is a lot more controllable than regular duckweed since it is larger and more easily thinned out.

ghost shrimp Yep, there it is Great Duckweed or (Spirodela polyrhiza) now the question is should i keep it? is it like the other duckweed that just takes over your tank that the plants have no light?

Help Identify this Floater I got in the mix

So I got a RAOK of floaters a long time ago from Albert and finally got all of the duckweed out of it and now I'm moving all of the frogbit to another tank, but I can't figure out what this one is, it reminds me of duckweed but is different. Please excuse the Riccia it came loose.
