It's not duckweed - the roots are all wrong. Amazon Frogbit, maybe, or a Salvinia species or maybe it's the one species of floating ludwegia.

a rootless aquatic fern.
What looks like roots are stems
|tophat665 ||12-15-2006 09:55 AM |
I can get behind that.

Either way do I need to do anything with it other than let it float?
|Aquaticmoon ||12-15-2006 02:04 PM |
nope ...just let it float :o

Awesome, the perfect plant for me! :lol:
It was kind of annoying me yesterday because there were so many parts of it just floating around the tank, but I think it was just the dead ends. Now that it's been there a day it is spread out real nicely on the top and even when fish swim through it it's not breaking apart very easily.

'Tis a salvinia in my opinion. Love_my_fish is probably right.:) Wish you could ship some for me.:sob:

I couldn't identify it for sure but I found a SITE
that has a little information. Be aware that this is one plant that is banned in some states and illegal to posses.
It might be one of the 3, I don't know but it doesn't look like any of them to em.
