Chickweed/Duckweed

Need something? Have extra?

Postby Indigo Blue Fish » 2005-11-22 21:36

Where can I get some - unfortunatly it's kind of getting cold here - and there isn't any. More to the point, I don't fancy digging around in the local ditch - it isn't all that nice. I think I may have some mysteriously sprouting in the top of my tank - but I can bet it will be eaten soon.
At the moment it's taken refuge amongst the umbrella fern leaves. That stops it "blowing" away in the outflow, and close to the light.
If anyone knows of a better supply, please let me know - they are getting through the Elodea at an alarming rate.... and my Nitrates aren't lowering by much... (yes I do a half waterchange every week, and most of the other tests are nearly 0 - but I never get algae due to Hillstreams, and Umbrella fern don't suck much up. It's not harming the fish it seems, but still not desirable.)

Wish I could send you some, I throw out at least 1 cup a week. The stuff grows so fast in the 75 it blocks a lot of light.

Susan - if you could sling some in a food baggie and post it, that'd be great... I'll pay whatever it costs you.
Frogbit - sounds fascinating *has gone to look what that is*

Oh that frogbit is pretty!
Sure thing Mick - thanks. I'll have to attach a plastic loop to stop it floating away...

Not if he is putting it into the goldie tank, they love to eat that stuff. I would suggest getting a tub or something to put in, that way you can keep some to feed to them.

You know what Quirls you just solved a problem for me.(Duck weed containment). Brilliant idea, suitable length of air line, 1 T connector and 1 sucker.
Connect both ends of air line to T connector, fit sucker to leg of T. Stick sucker to side of tank and hey-ho 1 Duckweed containment ring. Thank you very much, PM me your adr. and it's on it's way postage free. :D :woot: Yeah!

Your dead right Kev, but remember what I keep and breed, they love it and being so prolific is a bonus for me and a food supplement for my mbuna. I wouldn't mind trying a bit of frog bit, hint. :whistle: :lol3: :woot: Yeah!

Lol - well I have a tub for regrowing chewed up plants in, so most will go in there...
But yes, it's as easy as that - I got the idea from a breeder who kept celestial bubble eye fish and no bottom feeders - if he fed them in a ring, the food didn't drift off, and they could always find it.
