    It's a type of giant duckweed i believe. Much easier to control than regular duckweed. :D

    Very impressive setup, especially the wood pieces you put in there. Where did you learn how to do the dirted tank? Are you familiar with the walstad method?

    Thanks for sharing!

    ah no wonder i didn't recognize it, it's banned in California as far as i'm sure(everything is banned in California tbh).

    Yeah i've watched DFT, really great tips and ideas on it. Really simplifies dirted tanks, similarly to the walstad method.

    totally legal in NC lol. im more into there root systems they do a great job of keeping my water column clean and crystal clear and they use up the excess nitrates which is a plus and they just look sweet and r really easy to grow lol
