I was just getting ready to post that my 80 gallon tank that was covered by
a mix of Frog bit and Duckweed is almost completely duckweed free. I was
shocked. I have been trying to accomplish this for years. The only thing
different that I did with the tank is add 3 J. floridae. I knew they ate
algae, but I hadn't realized that they also ate duckweed. I am so happy.
Now all I have to do is breed them and put 3 in every tank I have. Yeah,
thatıs it. In every tank. Time to get rid of all the other killies :-)
