I have a Nymphaea rubra in my tank, which occasionally sends up small lily pads. Normally I just cut them off at the base of the plant so that more submerged leaves are formed instead. If i allow the lily pads to grow, will these be considered "floating plants" and therefor be beneficial to my fish?

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Is a shame really, for I like the Emperor's and they are not offered all that frequently. I just don't think they are a good fit with smaller less active fishes.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
