Water lettuce is a good floater to. It will produce daughter plants on a regular basis. They are a low light plant. Ant floater ...
Well, yesterday I happened to stop buy a LFS and they had two Water Wisteria plants on sale for a dollar a piece, so I got some!(: So I guess I'm just going to try some and if it dies, it's no big deal! I am going to try to order some floating plants from Aquatic Jungles in the near future though! I would also like to add that people said that African Cichlids and plants do not mix, but I did it and now my tank is nearly completely planted!! Also, my fish are more calm, they are healthier, and my water parameters are better than I could ever dream of them being; all because of a few plants!!
You can really try any of the floating plants, even if they need bright light, because they're so close to the light. I wouldn't suggest duckweed, it's nearly impossible to get rid of and grows insanely well. I would suggest water luttuce or frog bit. Wisteria is fine too, but larger. Brazilian pennywort is very easy and can be left floating.. red root floaters are pretty, but they always end up dying on me. I think any of the true floating plants need fairly still water to grow well, although duck weed will manage. With a hob it can be pushed down into the water column and get everywhere.
