So when I went to buy plants for my tank a few weeks back, I asked the guy to grab me a bunch of duckweed. I wanted a floating plant, and I love free. I figured I'd have to take about half out of the tank and chuck it every now and then, but didn't have any problems with that. I've noticed, however, that my duckweed doesn't thrive, and is in fact disappearing... and I discovered why today. My platies and sorority girls are eating it
Is this common? Will it hurt my girls? I really like the look of the tiny floating things, but if it'll hurt them, I'm taking out what's left and not getting anymore.
