Alum- in the spice rack at grocery stores like a white powder
Prepare 1 gal. of water to 2 TBS. of Alum soak for 2-3 days then rinse well before planting in tanks.

This is what I use to kill snails or algae on aquarium decorations
Bleach treatment:
19 prt/water to 1 prt bleach 2 min. soak/ rinse well before adding to tanks.

Are you sure you want duckweed as it grows like crazy in tanks. I got some( Salvia Minima)- Looks like duckweed but has larger leaves so it is easy to remove in tanks unlike duckweed.
I took down my outside tub pond and have a little bit of it I can send you. I do not have alot but it will grow and expand once it starts to grow for you.(PM) me if you want some in an envelop sent priority mail.

Well i want a floating plant that will grow somewhat fast cause i have 5 tanks that im trying to fill with plants, and especially my 20 gallon cause i want to breed my Groumais and from what i have read they need floating plants to make a nest for the eggs, but to send that to me is it going to cost me anything? cause i dont have money right now, thats why i got the duckweed from my grandmas pond

I can checdk how much the shipping is what your zip code? Washington state not D.C right? I was not going to charge you for the plants. If it is really cheap I will just send it to you. If it is not then it would not be worth me sending to you. I have to go look and see how much I have. It could not be but a few Ozs. so it should be cheap to mail to you.(PM) me your zipcode I can get back to you in the PM section and if it is cheap you can send your address in PM to me to mail it for you.
