I have 2 in my 5.5 gallon(amanos) and they rid me of hair algae in less than a week. They keep the tank tidy by nomming on dead plant matter too :)

When I had hair algae on my hornwort in the 75, they had a ball swimming around everywhere and nomming on the algae.

Anyone know if floaters like Duckweed, Salivna and Asian Water Grass shed their roots?
I have these "hairs" floating all over my tank. They literally look like dog hair! And I know for a fact the Super Pug hasn't taken a swim in my tank xD

Thanks!

They were tricky to plant. The lights are a clip on LED lamp by a LEO aquariums (not very common) They're similar to ones made by DYMAX.

Usually you screw them onto the side of a tank, but since the bowls a tricky shape I screwed the lamp onto a thick piece of blak plastic and it sits behind the tank.

I don't know how much pugs shed, but I find animal hairs floating in my tank all the time. I have two shedding dogs and two shedding cats so I guess I'm not surprised, haha. If you are like me and stick your hands in the tank frequently, it's bound to happen :)

As for floaters, I notice my frogbit plants seem to shed roots occasionally and I'll find one floating around...never noticed it with duckweed though.

I've been trying to find a small light for my planted bowls that doesn't look too huge...it's hard!! I'm going to try to do a search for those. They are really nice!

Yes they can definitely (and do defintely) shed their roots. Usually when disturbed but occasionally when they are in too much current and some other freak circumstances.

Hi there betta lovers this is my 46 gallon npt right at the moment there is not a betta in it but if my new rescue "Mr. Lucky Mellow" gets all better this will most likely be his new home, I am posting a vid of this tank because it would just take tooooooo many pics to show it off without delay here it is......http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCd71Xv8Kv0 . It has lots of plants of various kinds and lots of diffrent kinds of fish it has been up and running now for about 2-3 months now and all the hard work is paying off in the fact that water changes are very rare and done mostly out of habit lol and here are some pics of Lucky Mellow
