Ive only had experience floating rotala wallichii, and Water Sprite
(C. Cornuta). The rotala wallichii is pretty enough, but it looked much better planted as it gets bushy and pinkish. Its also stringy and makes a knotted mess. The same was true of the Hornwort
I tried. Wound up planting that one as well.
my favorite thus far is Ceratopteris cornuta
. Its Water Sprite
, the shorter, bushier of the 2 I have seen. Many members here including myself keep it as a floating plant. It grows like wildfire in my 20 long, and steadily in my 55. There are a handful of different ways to keep it in check if it gets blown around by the filter outflow. You could make a loop going through the leaves of the plant with fishing line, and tie it off to the hood. As it multiplies you just keep taking the new growth and putting it inside the fishing line.
