They have this at Petco that would work, but i would rather figure out a way to create a larger open space if possible. NutraFin Max Feeding Ring at PETCO
That gadget would work, but I wouldn't like the look of it floating. And, there should be some "natural" open space. This takes a bit of work, as Salvinia is like Duckweed in this respect: it will multiply rapidly and cover the surface in no time. I just thin them out each week at the water change, removing enough so the surface is maybe half or 1/3 covered; by the following week it is usually nearly covered again. I do this now with Duckweed, I used to do it with Salvinia when I had it.
