good floating plant for sorority?

So I went in to order plants from and find she is out of wisteria -.- Which was what I was going to get to cover the top of the tank for my sorority so the girls have cover to hide. I don't want to wait to see if she will restock sooo does anyone have any suggestions of a low/medium light plant that will cover the top well?

Hornwort is cheap, fast growing, and likes medium to hight, but can live in low, light. It floats and provides tons of cover.

My hornwort has good lighting. It has doubled (or tripled) in size since I got it about a month ago. It is takeing over my tank, so I will have to put some of it somewhere else.

i suggest you go to your local fish store and search for plants. they are WAY cheaper than getting them online. the most expensive plant i saw was like 9 dollars for a bunch, the rest were in between 1.99-4.99

Anacharis, water sprite, duckweed, frogbit, water lettuce, salvinia minima, red root floaters, and even rotala rotundifolia would be good floaters.
