  1. Anyone know if white amurs can help with duckweed on a small pond? Also, can they be stocked in the fall?

    they will eat duckweed.

  3. I have 2 farm ponds with duckweed in them, from what I understand no they do not eat duckweed. Ducks and koi eat duckweed but it will just grow back on the surface of the pond. Try getting rid of the duckweed ASAP because we had a fish kill due to the duckweed dying and going to the bottom taking all the oxygen out of the water. We sprayed 5 differnet things in the water and only one thing worked, the stuff the worked was sonar which was $500 a qt. Copper sulfate didn't work, Rodeo didnt work, cutrine plus didn't work......

    Duckweed is known to grow in older ponds with muck on the bottom.
  4. I had duckweed,moss both till i put my grass carp in.Have not had a problem in two years now.
