These are really nice suggestions! I really like the idea of maybe mixing duckweed ( I have a pretty strong light with heat protection, hopefully it won't get burned) and some of those red root floaters. That sounds super pretty! Thanks yall.Fanatic said:
I love the look of mosquito fern but shrimp have a pretty good taste for them and eat them readily. I love the way they look too, very cool looking.aussieJJDude said:
I've seen Foo the Flowerhorn (youtuber with amazing walstad tanks) grow it, though his amanos and blue velvet shrimps devour it.TexasDomer said:Apparently azolla is really hard to grow in aquariums - most people try and fail.

Once you get enough you have to take it out weekly in big clumps.... My poor bettas have trouble finding food in the thicc layer of duckweed. Also i want to try some water lettuce it is pretty!FriarThomasIII said:I've got a single piece that is growing in my 10 gallon with my betta, and once it takes off I'll take a clump and move it to the 30.
Very pretty with massive roots, plus they sometimes have little white flowers.CanadianFishFan said:Once you get enough you have to take it out weekly in big clumps.... My poor bettas have trouble finding food in the thicc layer of duckweed. Also i want to try some water lettuce it is pretty!
