I may be wrong as I am not too familar with floaters, but it does looks like some kind of duckweed. Depending on the size, it may be giant duckweed. The smaller duckweed is the ones that you don't want to have.

That's definitely duckweed. It's a great nitrate sponge, but it gets everywhere, including your arms and whatever else you stick in the tank.

Cuz I brought 3 mats of dwarf baby tears recently and most of them are gone. Then I started seeing these plants floating on tank.
