Yep, there are a few different varieties/sizes of Duckweed within the hobby.

People tend to harp on the smaller varieties because it gets everywhere but I love it in shrimp tanks. Added security of sucking up nitrate.

Salvinia needs decent lighting and typically needs a good amount of nutrients in the water column. Not sure how I'm making it work in this particular tank but it continues to grow.

I feel like salvinia stinks... It didn't take off the last time I had it.

How about red root floaters? Never tried those
