Duckweed is a small floating aquatic plant that your aquatic animals such as fish, tadpoles and frogs, salamanders will consume. It acts as a tonic for the water and as a food for the fish. The fish consume the duckweed rapidly. It is high in protein and has vital minerals and vitamins for the fish. Provides excellent protein and fiber in the fish's diet. It is known that duckweed protein has higher concentrations of the essential amino acids, lysine and methionine, than most plant proteins and more closely resembles animal protein in that respect.

Duckweed also has trace biochemicals such as beta carotene and xanthophyll. The nutritional requirements of fish appear to be met completely in ponds receiving only fresh Duckweed. Just place a portion of duckweed on the surface of the water and watch the fish feed. Enter our On-Line store and order Duckweed today!

Daphnia are small (the size of a flea) crustaceans that typically live in the bottom of ponds. They feed on algae and are known to reduce algae in the water garden pool. Fish are very fond of Daphnia, they have a jerking motion that attracts the fish to consume them rapidly. Aquarium keepers are most familiar with Daphnia and often watch them being consumed by the fish through the glass. Just pour the critters into your water garden pool or aquarium. If you are an aquarium keeper and have never have fed Daphnia you will fall in love with the fish's reaction. It is a special treat for all fish! Enter our On-Line store and order Daphnia today!
