Floating Plants

I am looking for a good source for some anarchis/elodea or similar floating plants my betta can hang out in at the top of his tank. My local store has some but I really want a nice rich green sample.. not one that has brown leaves. Also is my 19w bulb going to be enough or should I upgrade? My moss balls are just fine.

It's a 10 gallon and I use Equilibrium but that's all the additives. No tank mates at this time. Debating some kind of algae eater tho.

I've looked into trying to replace the light. I guess Life Glo is a good one? But the bulb in the hood is 18" and the only 18" bulbs I can find anywhere are only 15w.. this one is at least 19.. so I would think it'd do better..

If you can order on line this guy has awesome Anacharis and also his Hornwort is great, you can join Aquabid for free. I am very pleased with the Anacharis and Hornwort I got from him plus he ships fast and my plants arrived in great shape !

Thanks guys! I ended up biting the bullet and got an aquaticlife t5ho fixture. I'll pick up some additional moss balls and elodea soon :)
