    hornwort is an excellent, hardy floating plant that grows quickly. It also loves nitrates so will help with nitrate control

    That depends on the hornwort. I tried some from the lfs, and it gradually disintegrated over a period of a week or two. Then several years ago I got a few small bits along with some dwarf crayfish. Those small pieces thrived, and eventually became quite a tankful. I still have some of it today, sold most of it off several times.

    ^^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks.

    I am interested in looking for some floating plants for my currently cycling betta tank. I was thinking of anacharis or water sprite as they are readily available at some of my lfs ( I know anacharis is). unfortunately as they are directly in display tanks I'd need to treat for possible snails first. I won't be using substrate in the betta tank, just floating plants to filter the light so it's not too strong for the betta.

    I have bleach at home and would be treating them in a 2.5 gallon bucket. how much bleach would I need for a 1:20 bleach/water to treat any plants from my lfs to minimize/prevent snails in the tank once it's cycled?

    Omg, you have to try Brazilian pennywort! I have it in all my tanks with fry and it does wonderful floating while staying in place, if desired, without getting scattered with the filter flow.

    I don't have a pic off hand of my plants, but I stole this off the net.

    What Ugly spray bar, i don't see any ugly spray bar :D

    and honestly i was thinking of trying pennywort, it isn't available near me, so would have to get it shipped...ah the shipping fees of doom. this also means it can't be guaranteed snail free...but i love the look of it.

    May also get a piece of driftwood for inside the tank and put a plant into any available holes, but my first choice for this tank is definitely floating plants.

    Also sorry it took me so long to see this reply, i forgot i had posted a question here.

    though i do like anacharis and it's easy to find here.

    I'll have to see...gah plant decisions...why you have to be so difficult.

    LOTS and LOTS of effort...have been fighting it for months-miss just one and its a never ending battle...if you get one in another tank they you are really in for it. I can't stand it! Have frogbit and it is so much nicer than the duckweed.
