duckweed

  1. Plants
    I've been experimenting with different floaters: frogbit, duckweed, and red root (Phyllanthus fluitans). I'm discovering the slowest growing is red root and I'm thinking of trying now to get rid of the frogbit and duckweed because they both seem to grow and spread almost 3X as fast as the red...

    I have been looking into getting some plants for on top of my water, such as duckweed or frogbit. I have read some people say they are more of a pest than a purposeful plant. What are the Pros and cons? If I did get some I would include a ring to contain the floating plants in the top of my...
  3. Planted Nano Tanks
    I love Red Root Floaters, but have read that they can be sensitive to temperature changes. My low tech 5 gallon nano tank does fluctuate in temperature from 68 to 80 degrees (but it usually stays between 74 to 78), and so far all my other plants and creatures have been fine with it. I'm looking...

  6. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I did a quick search and saw some threads on growing duckweed outdoors, but not with this wrinkle. I've got two ~50G covered rain barrels. I've also got duckweed growing like crazy in two tanks. So I wondered about duckweed in the barrels, so I can remove it from the tanks until I need it to...

    I had a lot of Duckweed, and was constantly having to remove it. Then I put a few Ottos in the tank a week ago, and the Duckweed seems to have disappeared. Has anyone else experienced Ottos eating Duckweed?
