    Default Dwarf Water Lettuce

    I was thinking about getting a floating plant for my 29g because the fish I want to get will rely on the shade and protection that a floating plant provides.

    I tried java moss to no avail, seeing as how it just sunk to the bottom
    So I am now focusing on attaining Dwarf Water Lettuce

    I am not doing C02 injections, nor liquid ferts, yet.
    I still have the lights that came with the tank so its a low lit tank, 1 watt per gallon.
    And it would float on the surface about 1¼ inches below the lights


    With those conditions would the plant do well in my tank or would it suffer?
    Would that be enough lighting to support the Dwarf Water Lettuce?

    I had dwl,it was dang near a weed in my tank.I eventually grew tired of having to thin it out all the time and got rid of it.If your looking for a hardy low maint floating plant I cant think of one thats better.
