Looking for plants

I know, I know, another one of these threads! Willing to pay for the plants and shipping. I'm hoping to get enough from one source to just combine shipping if possible. But that probably isn't going to happen, huh?

I'm looking for low-medium light plants..Some floating ones if possible. Duckweed or something similar. Other than that, looking for nice big bushy plants that will really fill up the space.

Trying to fill up a 20 gallon tall with enough plants to have a sorority without them feeling stressed!

So far I have some clumps of Java fern and a christmas moss wall growing in the back.

I always had look shipping, if you ever want any tips or anything just PM me or something.

I'm not selling as I have algae and don't want to pass it, until it is gone and I am sure that I won't be passing down algae. A bushy plant to consider is wisteria, usually Petco gets it in the emersed stage so it will fail at first, to tell if it is grown submersed the leaves should be very branchy and unique looking. If it is just a leaf with some wrinkles it won't do good so pay attention, but after it is grown and adjusts it will be super bushy and dense. Go on YouTube and search Dustinsfishtanks and go to his most recent video, he pulls some healthy wisteria out of the tank.

I don't know if you have a Pet Supplies Plus where you are, but they are having bunch plants on sale for $1 a bunch until 9/29...I have loaded my first 10g just from that sale. It is mostly cabomba, anarcharis, and Bacopas...but it was a great way to start!
