|wicca27||red bottom floater seems like a good name. but i also have what i thought was giant duckweed that does not get red on the bottom and has a single root from each leaf and i belive i have micro duckweed too. i so hate the stuff cant get rid of it but it does a good job in the fish and shrimp tanks. thanks for the help guys|

|pandamonium||I received some plants that looked like these locally. I was told it was red Bottom floater which is the same as giant duckweed apparently|

what other plants look like duckweed?
so in one of my tanks i have something that acts and looks like duckweed...... and no this is not a case of if it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck its duckweed lol. the difference is the bottom of the leaves gets red/purple and the roots tend to have several off the same plant not like duckweed that has a single root in one place. these are the best pics i could get right now hope it helps.
top of the plant
side/root shot... yes its covering the back wall thanks to evap in the tank lol
