    Default Just got Frogbit today.

    Hey all. I got an order of some shrimp in the mail today and I had the vendor send me some Frogbit with it. I would like the frogbit to cover the entire surface of my 10 gallon tank. It didn't occur to me until I added the frogbit to my tank that the surface agitation caused by my AC30 Hob may be too intense for the frogbit.

    When I first added it in, it blew around the top for a minute before coming to rest on the "edge" of the area where the water reenters the tank from the waterfall of the hob.

    Is surface agitation a problem for the frogbit, or will it be okay?

    The frogbit in my 33 gallon also gets blown around alot too. It does fine but I have the impression it did better when kept still.What I used to do was move the filter to one side of the tank and suspend a thin nylon thread across the width of the tank about half a centimeter under the surface. It kept the frogbit in place nicely but it tends to cause scum to form in between the plants because water circulation then becomes really poor.
