Floating Plants

I was wondering if more experienced planted tank people could give us newbies a list of plants that can just be floated in our tanks.

I think it's an easier slow transition from fake plants to a planted aquarium, and also good for people like me who might move soon and are hesitant to plant too much in our various tanks and not be able to move them later.

Ok .. Anubias? Anacharis What else?

Duckweed, frogbit, dwarf water lettuce, salvinia, guppy/naja grass, hornwort, witseria. There are more, but those are the easiest ones to have, note that duckweed, frogbit, water lettuce, and salvinia float on top of the water. Frpgbit and water lettuce get long roots that provide cover though.

Water sprite easily grew out of control for me years ago! I kept turtles and just fed it to them when it overgrew in my fish tank lol

I prefer anarchis planted, it grows a lot faster for me, but it can be floated.

I'd like to have floating plants but I'd like something that isn't hard to maintain.
