    Hi I create a lot of water spangles and duckweed in one of my tanks. You can have it if you want free floating plants. Just message me.

    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...

    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?

    I'm sorry if this is not the right place to post this, but here goes... I have duckweed (and some other floating plant whose name I don't know) on top of my tank, and I like it a lot, but I don't know the best way to deal with the little bits of it that get sucked out when I'm doing water...
