 Duckweed is an extremely fast growing floating plant. It is great to use in aquarium to help prevent algae, provide shade for inhabitants, increase surface area and to reduce nitrates. Duckweed can also be use for shrimp food when blended into a paste and dried (add in spirulina powder to enrich it). 

You will receive one (1) portion of duckweed. One portion is equivalent to a ping pong ball size. One portion is a good start for a 10 gallon aquarium. 

Main Benefits:

  • Fast growing to absorb nitrates
  • Easy to grow
  • Increase surface area for shrimp to graze
  • Promotes oxygen rich water
  • Provides hiding places for shrimp and baby shrimp

*All Plants may contain snails or snail eggs. We keep them in all of our tanks for the benefits they provide.*

Good Quality and Quantity

The duckweed arrived in a little container and contained more than enough for a medium tank. It all looks very healthy.
Looking in the container, I could see what seems to be some planarians and tiny shrimp along with other critters, but that is to be expected with any plant. I enjoyed watching them scurry around anyway.
Overall, the duckweed is very good quality and quantity for the price.


It’s was perfect my baby guppies really love the duck weeds

More then ping pong ball sized!

Not only did the duckweed arrive in great shape but it also (at least in my order) seemed like a lot more then described which was a nice surprise. Packaged well and quality product. Thanks Flip Aquatics!
