Re: [APD] Rainbows and duckweed

Well, if they're hungry enough, they'll even take bites out of Anubias, but ime, duckweed isn't their favored fare.
But they're nice fish in a large tank and their early morning antics are interesting.

I think you'll find that Melanotaeniaa parva come from a 
single lake in Papua-New Guinea not Australia.  They're more surface insect eaters.  I was refering to old fashioned common Australian Rainbows..Read cheap!.....Jim  PS Actually most of the Aussie rainbows will eat lots of veggie matter.like Duckweed.

This doesn't work with all rainbows--y six three inch melanotaenia 
parva are happily living in a 29G tank with an abundance of duckweed.
