Yep just scoop every single bit out with a net and you'll be right. I use paper towel to wipe off any excess duckweed from the rim of the tank after scooping the stuff out.

put a goldfish in your tank and it will eat it all to extinction... add more goldfish if its a big tank or pond.... just plain goldfish dont bother with fancies :)


when its nearly all eaten splash around the lips and any cover glass to get any remaining bits into the water....
