OK so I have a small problem: I would love to get a floating plant for my tank (as some of you may remember from older posts) and I was given some very good advice on which plants to get. My problem is that none of the LFS around here actually carry floating plants. That leaves an internet order of floating plants but given where I live and the temperature here this time of year, no reasonable company that ships aquarium plants will ship this time of year so I have to wait until May or even June at the earliest before I can order plants online.
Is there anything else than a plant that can be used as a floating object in an aquarium to provide cover for the fish until I can actually get my hands on a floating plant? I'd love to hear what people have done/tried and what happened with their experience.
