    Default Quick question -- floating plants


    0 Not allowed!
    I want to add some kind of floating plant to my planted tank to dim the lighting. I've had duckweed before and really liked the look of it but my severums ate it faster than it could grow. I tried to get my hands on some frogbit but it's not available in NZ, due to it being a weed. So I was thinking either duckweed (Lemna minor), Riccia fluitans or Azolla rubra. Tips on which to get would be helpful.

    Anyway... Will floating plants inhibit the growth of my other plants by restricting how much light they receive?

    Also, are there any lily-pad type plants which will grow in an aquarium? Pardon my ignorance.
