My duckweed and American frogbit both have extremely long roots. Thought it was cool at first but it has become a bit unsightly. Each clump of frogbit sends down one long root, most of the rest stay shorter, though not short. My tanks are all very under stocked with fish right now.

Can I safely trim that long dangler?

Thanks for the replies. Didn't know that about the American Frogbit. It's the only one my supplier has though, so I'm stuck with it. I snipped some roots in my smaller tanks and it seems to have done no harm.

I just wonder why the plants I received for purchase did not have these long roots if they are natural to the species?
