Plant difficulty: EASY – Duckweed is the perfect aquarium plant for beginners.

Duckweed is a native Australian aquatic plant. This floating aquarium plant is commonly found in still and slow moving freshwater rivers, lakes and wetlands. Duckweed is suitable for ponds or aquarium tanks. Duckweed is a great addition to your aquascape as a floating aquarium plant. Floating just beneath the surface, Duckweed aquatic plants form a lush green carpet on top of your fish tank, providing shelter and shade for fish and other plants.

Duckweed floating aquarium plants remove excess nutrients in aquarium water, and help control algae. What tropical fish eat Duckweed? Goldfish, Koi, Tilapia, Cichlids, Shrimp, Grass Carp, and turtles, enjoy Duckweed as food due to its highprotein. Find out even more benefits of live aquarium plants vs artificial aquarium plants. Duckweed should fed in conjunction with fish food, and not solely be relied upon for a fish's diet.

Floating Duckweed also helps aerate your tank with oxygen, leading to healthy fish and overall high water quality. It is important to ensure your Duckweed aquarium plant does not completely cover the top of your aquarium as this will cause oxygen depletion. The poor lighting conditions created will inhibit photosynthesis, and may cause fish to die.
