What africans for duckweed control?

Recommended Posts

You can add some fish into the pond to eat duckweed or you can scoop duckweed out to feed your fish. I prefer to add duckweed to my own food mix as gelatine reduces the mess floating plants make. A third option if you have central filtered tanks is to run your water through the pond (provided its small enough to control disease). The duckweed makes a great nitrate filter which reduces the amount and frequency of water changes and fish gain better colour from all the microscopic live food a pond has.

None of my africans seem that interested in duck weed....I have it in an outside child's wading pool and scooped a net full out for them...It did disappear gradually - into the canister...lol

My comet goldfish are the ones who love duck weed...a whole net full is gone in no time...and the silver dollars as well as my severums eat it too...
