View Full Version : What floating plant will work best for me?

I have zero knowledge about floating plants. However my entire aquarium is filled with live plants.

I was hoping to get some floating plants to add some movement to my tank and to give my tetra school a little more cover. I have a low light setup. What are some floating plants that may work for me?

How about 3-4 sprigs of Brazillian Pennywort anchored to back/top of tank. Gives a nice green patch of interwoven cover at the top that grows well.

Pennywort and hornwort (spelling ?) have both worked really well for me as a floating plant in the past.

Frogbit is another good option.

Water lettuce is good too. It puts down a little root from the top so if you have surface movement you can see this circling the tank :)

+1 to the above, all awesome choices. I couldn't resist the urge to show my little anchor. It's actually alot fuller now and is about 2-3" deep for growth. Very nice cover now for fry.
