    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...

    So I got myself a water hyacinth and it has been doing very poorly. All the leaves it came with have wilted away and any new growth it gets seems to be struggling to stay green. However all my submerged and one emergent plant has been doing fantastic, so I'm having a hard time figuring out why...

    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...

    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...

    Dwarf water lettuce grown in low tech, low light. I dose PPS-Pro, though they grew well before I started dosing.

    http://imgur.com/UQ5BWSH Picture shows the plants. I have tons of it. They absorb the excess nutrients and give a nice cover for the aquarium below. I can't guarantee live arrival since it's RAOK, but given the quantity I send (2+ cups) it should be enough to get you started :). All I need is...

    I have this plant, I love it but I am not happy with the way it keeps my tank water from circulating the surface, so I thought maybe someone else would have a better set up for it than I do. I have as of a week ago, trimmed it and cleaned up what was dying off or getting algae. Not to say that...

    Here's an old favorite of many livebearer breeders or those of us that like to have floating aquatic life in our tanks regardless of what type fish you keep. It also acts as another food source for our greens eaters, as well as being a good oxygenator. It can also be matted easily or applied...
