Talking Duckweed for Sale! Giant and Standard Mix!

Hi Everyone!

I am offering 1/2 cup measurements of mixed duckweed for $11 including priority shipping!

This is a mix of healthy giant duckweed and standard duckweed.
Perfect for beginners, low light requirement, grows quickly, hard to kill!

I grow it in my main display tank which houses some of my adult axolotls. This plant provides awesome cover from whatever lighting you use.

Since allowing this plant to completely cover the surface of my tank, I've noticed that my axolotls are much more "front and center" in my tank now. They are always out and about!

Here is a nice photo I took of the goods! I know some people regard this stuff as a pest plant, but seriously, this stuff is awesome. It sucks up nitrates and grows like, well, ...a weed! lol
It does best in tanks with minimal surface disturbance... such as a tank with a sponge filter or something else that diffuses the water flow.

I may have to get some of that. I had it before and grew it in a full filtered tank. What I did was put a floating ring in the tank for the duck weed to grow so it didn't get everywhere.

I think it might work well in the class containers for the babies to keep the water cleaner.

I have never had the greater though. Does it multiply pretty fast also?

I like the giant duckweed a lot. It looks really nice... kind of like miniature amazon frogbit. In my experience with it, it grows just as quickly - if not more so - than the standard. It actually seems as if the giant one is overtaking the standard in my tank. Larvae love to hide under the duckweed. And it does help with the water quality. Good idea with the floating ring. I basically did the same thing with a ring of airline tubing, when I was trying to contain frogbit. The ring worked great, but the frogbit didn't end up thriving and so I had to get rid of it.

Do you ever see problems with axolotls eating duckweed, or if this would have any ill effects on them? My axie is very "bitey" and eats her worms from the top of the water. I'm afraid that if I put any floating plants in her tank she would just nip at them and eat them.

Axolotls will sometimes nip at and inadvertently eat a bit of duckweed now and again. Mine do this sometimes. There are no ill effects of this that I am aware of. It's just a bit of extra roughage!

Alex, right now I am completely sold out. I am hoping to soon offer some salvinia for sale. Salvinia is another great floating plant. Not as messy in the aquarium as duckweed. But easy to grow. I'll update when it's available :-)

No, it needs to grow floating on a calm water surface.

And I actually no longer have it or grow it. But it does work well in a tank with minimal surface disturbance (sponge filters are compatible with it's needs).
