Suggestions on Where to find floating plants?

I am having trouble finding floating plants for my Honey Gourami. I was looking for suggestions on where to look, I tried the petsmart but they do not carry and floating plants. I currently only have fake plants in my tank but I want to add a floating plant for my gourami to make it more comfortable.

planted aquariums Central, live aquarium plants

I buy all my plants from there. They always give me more than what I paid and throw in free plants. Just recently I bought a Riccia (Nice floating plants, or you can attach it to things) I bout a 2" X 2" piece, and received a piece that was 5" by 5".

I highly recommend them.

Live floating plants are easy to maintain and a good addition to gourami aquaria, with fake plants below. You get the benefits of live plants with ease of care.

Water Sprite is especially good with gourami as it provides lots of floating leaves and dangling roots for the gourami to browse through, their favourite pastime. You can see this plant in our profiles, click the shaded name.

I've never ordered plants online, so I'll leave it to those who have to suggest sources.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
