    Is frogbit going to have trouble if I keep it in a covered tank? Some sites said that with frogbit the top of the leaves have to stay dry and to be careful with water changes and even splashing pumps. How true is this?

    Frogbit is a bigger cousin check it out.
    It's my understanding salt kills off duckweed, the same amount used when treating a FW tank and at a level low enough to not effect your fish? I will of course defer to those more knowledgeable on FW plants, that would be everyone who posted. I like the stuff myself and it stays on one side of my 75 due to flow. I just use a net once a week to remove the excess.

    I am not sure how the shrimp and chilis would fare with even a bit of salt, the adult chilis are the same size as the adult shrimp. I have a stepladder that I will be (hopefully) taking upstairs this weekend to get better access to the top of this tank so I can do a better job removing all of the floaters, cleaning the frogbit and putting it back in. Have to clean the filter too as the duckweed is in it as well.

    Thanks! It's why I put the question mark as I was unsure.
