View Full Version : Little green dots?

I recently purchased some plants for my tank. One of the first things that I noticed was these little green dots on some of the leaves. I treated some water in my sink and rinsed all the plants off. I missed some of the dots and they are now floating at the surface of my tank. The dots now have a small thread or root growing out of them and going straight down into the water about an inch long. What are they? I was thinking duckweed but do not know. Each dot is bright green and about an eigth of an inch across. Are they harmful?

Yup. Congrats, you've got Duckweed. If you don't want it, go get a net and skim your water very very well and do it every day for the next couple of weeks. That's how I got rid of it in my 125.
