which floating plants?

Hi i want to get some floating plant to put in my 10 gallon tanks just wondering which one is easy and can reproduces. Can you guys tell me how much lighting it needs for each plants. I'm looking at frog bit(Limnobium spongia), duckweed, water lettuce, WATER HYACINTH. Any thoughts on these plants?

Ive had a lot of luck with frogbit. Its actually my favorite, but doesnt do too well with furan-2. IF you ever have to treat for that remove the frogbit right away.

Duckweed is a prolific reproducer, if you decide to get it, please go for the giant variety as its easier to clean out of your tanks.

Water lettuce seemed to be a little fragile IME, it's all died by the time I recieved it in the mail.
