So I bought a couple amazon swords off eBay. They arrived in good condition so I planted them in my tank. Today, about 3 days after I received them, I found this very small leaf floating in my tank which I later found out was duckweed from the seller of the amazon swords aquarium. Since it is only 1 single leaf, could it still reproduce into many? I know some people don't like them and that they are very hard to get rid of but I want to give them a try.
it looks nice but its too invasive. i had it in my first tank as a hitchhiker and in a couple weeks the whole top was covered . if you leave one leaf itll come back like the terminator
