A "What's this plant?" question

They just showed up. I like em, the fish seem to like em, and I have a few in all the tanks now cause they multiply fairly quickly.

Plant in question being the little floating ones...

could be either duckweed or silvania and I am leaning towards duckweed since that is what matches the google images I found

Definitely Common Duckweed, when you go to get it or if you order it make sure you get COMMON duckweed, because unknowingly you could end up with Giant duckweed which is twice as invasive.

Heh, I didn't order it, it just showed up. I would imagine a piece stuck to another plant I got somewhere along the way. That being said, I assume and hope it's good for the tank, cause it's in all of them!

Thanks for the ID!
