no, duckweed is wary wary small, its got widdle widdle woots and you can awe-most fit one on a needle hwead.Who me? Well as I'm relatively a newby to ponds I relish any info that could be useful to enhance the quality of life to the inhabitants of the new world I've created for them.
This duckweed that is being mentioned, is that the string alea kind, which is thread like when pulled at?
I've been putting off clearing mine out of my little 300gal pond, thinking the fish may appreciate it, and fine debris was getting, caught in it, but this evening I finally got to check on my fish and to my horror 1 of the orandas was snagged by the weed which was being drawn into the waterfall pump, No one gave me the heads up on the vaunerability of little oranders in small ponds with string algea, maybe I should post a comment on the newbys section, if string algea is the correct term lol
You're describing string algae and yeah, the fish WILL eat it but most take a stick and swirl it out as it tends to get tangled on the other plants.
