I love duckweed myself, not sure why some people think its a "pest" lol. It grows in abundance, which means you'll never have to buy more if you have other tanks. When I get too much in a tank, I just scoop some out with a net and keep it in a bucket outside and let it grow some more lol. All of my tanks have duckweed in them! And if I can figure out a way to block it from getting into my pond filter, my pond will soon too!

They dont get sucked up by the intake but that sounds like a great addition to my tank!the duckweed actually freely floats around the tank and gets tossed around by the output of the filter but there doing fine with the roots stuck into the leaves of my hornwort

I tend to prefer the bigger floaters like Frog-bit, since I nearly always have my arm in the tank, my duckweed get's rather annoying. Also after a while if it get's too much it will block out the light for the plants underneath. So that's why I don't like it as much is all.

It is cute though, but a pain to remove when you want it to! Especially when you have a mix of duckweed and frog-bit
