Something Flowered

I found these flowers floating in the tank this evening (the ones with circles around them). I didn't see where they came from but I'm fairly sure they are flowers.

Does anybody recognize what plant these came from? They were found among the stargrass.

Sparky. Seriously. What is with you and flowers.

I am so jealous of your plants.

No idea what those are though.

Sparky, don't anger the plant people. They have CO2 and chemicals.

They are not attached to anything. I found them just floating around the tank. I thought I saw stargrass flower on another post and they were little white flowers too. I couldn't find the post though.

I'm jealous even if it is duckweed flower. MY duckweed doesn't flower.

PS-Sorry if I'm the one that contaminated your tank w/weed.

No worry, I kind of like it. I just scoop out what I see every week when I do a pwc. I give it to a friend that says his cichlids love it.

I'm thinking that it is not duckweed flowering. The flowers are bigger than the duckweed itself.
