Easiest floating plant to care for, that doesn't grow like crazy? #1
Hi everyone,

I'm just looking to find the easiest floating plant for my tank to possibly help to give my Amano and bamboo shrimp a little more cover at the top of my tank but I'm unsure what is the best kind of plant to go for?

I was looking at dwarf water lettuce but heard it covers the water surface like crazy.

Haven't really seen any stores sell floating plants in the UK either to physically see them.

Here are some potential options and suppliers for you:

The limnobium laevigatum (Amazonian frogbit) or salvinia natans might be good options.
