I love the Hornwort its so pretty floating and Perseus loves it to sleep in but when I first put in he attacked it biting at it and everything..lol It was his first real plant. I also have Anacharis and its also a nice easy plant, one piece is at the bottom its the biggest piece and has a shoot on it that has grown 1 inches in a month. The other piece is small but alway has a shoot on it around 4 inches and I am just letting it float right now.

does hornwort really shed the needles as bad as some people claim?

I think Hornwort is the best... looks great and gives bettas a place to rest & hide...
love the long roots that it produces too...

any stem can be foated technically so yes cabomba can be, however keep in mind if you have low light the purple wont keep the purply colour.

My hornwort dropped most of its needles when I introduced it to my water. It's sort of growing back now though. It made a huge mess at the floor of the tank though!

I love my Hornwort and what I did was put it in a bowl with some of my tank water I had saved from water changes and sat if somewhere so it could get some sunlight for a week before I put it in my tank and it lost very few needles that way. Perseus loves it too he sleeps in it.

Riccia is also a good floating plant...and I prefer it over java moss. It grows faster and looks much more appealing too. You don't need a lot, and give it a bit of love and it'll puff up and grow easily.
