duckweed is pretty small and can make a big mess with a hob filter. might want to consider hornwort.

im nto big on the appearance of the hornwoart or have I heard its great at shielding light/sucking up excess nutrients/ extremely fast grower. I may have to make some type of flow baffle for my hob. but im looking into some dwarf water lettuce duckeweed, frogbit and maybe just maybe some water hysenthia. just not sure about the crazy long draping roots but then again might give a neat looking appearance in the tank.

DWL, I'm hoping to be able to get some of that this month as the pond supplies show up at the LFS. You will definitely want to keep thee flow from the HOB away from this stuff... from what I understand.

applies to your dislike of hornwort an also as a floating plant to help block out excess light

ok so wisteria and hornowart are related how? I think your missing the point why I choose those specific species I mentioned. I need dense light diffusion/blocking and extremely fast growing which = super fast nutrient uptake. not to mention I like the appearance of the selsected species. hornwort not so much and to top it off its coldwater plant I run 80 in my African tank

you mentioned wisteria is not fast growing, I never said anything about wisteria maybe im confused? either way things are looking up and the water is clearning up little by little. its nice to see the tank improving instead of another type of algae
