I love having plants in my aquarium, but sadly, I have not dived into the world of floating plants yet. I am taking all ...
I've also been thinking about Water Wisteria. Is it a low light plant?
Wisteria will do best in medium to high lighting.
I have Water sprite as my floating plant. Its been doing great under my low lighting. Other plants I have used for floating plants and have good luck with are Duckweed and Brazilian Pennywort and now Water Sprite. I have floated Wisteria and had it grow ok but it was in a tank that had a Dual T8 fixture.
Another one to think about is Amazon frogbit. In my 10 gallon it is growing so fast under a single T8 bulb that I have to pull some out every single week. In another tank I have that has no fish, no added ferts, no heater it keeps covering the surface as well.
Is whatever floater you get going in an African cichlid tank? You might have trouble there with the fish eating whatever plant you try.
