A great habitat for aquatic life
Duckweed gives ambiance of nature to the water body, the lush green cover makes the water body more natural-looking, mimicking the appearance of wildlife habitat for your fish and fry.

Water filtration
Duckweed is great in effectively absorbing phosphates, nitrates, ammonia, other chemicals, and even toxins in the tank, thus improving the water quality of the tank by preventing the accumulation of unwanted toxic chemicals.

Control of Algae and bacteria
The extensive coverage provided by duckweed limits sunlight from entering the tank, thus, limiting the amount of sunlight entering the water body, and ultimately resulting in the reduction of algae and cyanobacteria which require sunlight to thrive.
