floaters

  1. Plants
    Hi everyone! I thought it would be interesting to start a thread on what people use their discarded floating plants for. I put my excess duckweed on my pot plants as a fertiliser. I've also heard of people blending it up and using it as an ingredient in home-made shrimp foods which I might try...
  2. Low Tech Forum
    My frogbit and salvinia minima are not liking my tanks even though I've tried to keep them in low-flow areas. I want to put them in a container by a window to keep them going for future use, but I'd like to keep the container low-maintenance. My concern is mainly with fertilization. I don't want...

    I have Amazon Frogbit in all three of my tanks. One is a blackwater tank where it works perfectly, keeping the light levels dim and nutrients low. However, I have a dirted tank with lots of stems, and the frogbit is blocking out too much light. It does, however, act as a major contributor...

    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...

    Hello Ladies and gentlemen. I am hoping I can get some suggestions on how to make my salvinia minima do better. I got a bunch of it in a plastic planter outdoors. Although it has multiplied tremendously, it does not look great. It has some green plants, but most of them are brown. A little...
  8. 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...

    Dwarf water lettuce grown in low tech, low light. I dose PPS-Pro, though they grew well before I started dosing. Small chance of algae in the roots and/or snail eggs/babies (ramshorn and MTS) but I've been able to remove most, if not all in previous shipments. Nothing a dip won't take care of. I...

    Hey y'all, this is maybe a little weird but Chris Cornell's death hit me extremely hard. Soundgarden has been one of my favorite bands for a long time and I honestly credit them with enabling me to survive a very traumatic period in my life, so hearing that Chris may have been unable to deal...
