    So I discoverd a while back that duck weed was good for some of my tanks especially with the guppy fry tanks where I tend to feed powered food quite heavily to the fry. The duck weed helps to keep the tanks in check with increasef food and waste that is subsequently produced.

    As a result it grows even more crazy than normal and when I do a 2 or 3 weekly cleanup in these tanks I tend to throw out quite a large quantity.

    I have heard that it makes excellent food for koi fish and since I dont have any koi at present, it literally gets flush down the drain.

    So if any one on GP wants free duck week let me know else a whole bunch is been tossed this weekend.

    Not the drain as it is super invasive. Extremely good compost maker. Just throw hand full around the indoor plants.

    This could possibly be great for fish fry and creating a green water tank
