Seems to be growing alot of off shoots ok, but the leaves seem to melt away quickly. Could this be due to shrimps eating it ?

Hi all,

Definitely Frogbit, but no, I'm almost certain that is lack of iron (Fe), in a plant available form. Look at the colour of the new leaves, how pale and yellow they are.

Have a look at @jameson_uk's <"Duckweed Index says...."> and <"Donations - Frogbit"> threads.

cheers Darrel
