Is very good way to introduce unwanted parasites to your tank. Even a good rinsing may not remove what could prove to be contributer of disease with fishes.

I wouldn't risk it for duckweed- it becomes a pain in an aquarium... Trust me.

I had to fight ich, and that was a pain for a couple weeks... I've been trying to get rid of my duckweed for 2 months!!
