I like water lettuce and this is usually what my male will build his nest under as well and the fry love to hide, hunt etc in the long roots that hang down from the plant-but I also have mass amount of plants in my spawning tank since I use the natural method-soil based, mass plants, full to the top with water and all my systems have water lettuce....moss and wisteria are also great plants to float...

I also love java moss and wish I had water lettuce as OFL has mentioned, theres a store that sells it pretty close but it was listed as 2 dollars a plant! Or maybe I read it wrong and it was 2 dollars for a bunch or something, I don't know but I ended up passing on it.

I use Java moss primarily. Also pennywort, hornwort, java ferns (left floating or sunk to the bottom), and najas grass (guppy grass).

Water lettuce work good if you have a good light source.
Produce very quickly.
Long root system
If you don't then plant will be more of a mess then good.
The root and leave fall off.
Java moss
Can never keep them alive in my breeding tank
But in a jar them seem to grow fine.
The two plants that I can only keep alive in my breeding tanks are duckweed
Water sprite.
Which I like the water sprite over the duck weed.
