Lemna

Water lentils float on the surface and grow very fast. If they are introduced into a tank, either deliberately or accidentally, they can colonize the entire surface, so they must be eliminated regularly.

Lemna minor

The duckweed is often confused with L. gibba, but its leaves do not exceed 1 cm in length. It can be used to provide shade in one part of the aquarium, or a refuge for fry. Size: around 1 cm.
