Badly want some floating plants like you have too, but alas cannot find any..
The easiest background is plain black construction paper. I have this on my smaller tanks. The background on that tank just happens to be an "Amazon" one that I got back in 1995. It is very dark coloured and not glossy, which allows it to almost disappear.
Those floating plants in that tank are a disaster, you don't want them.
Amazon Frogbit. This plant seems to go through phases, right now it is covering most of the surface, but I think it is at its peak and will now begin to die back to almost nothing. I'll toss some Water Sprite in then.
