Floating Plants for Betta tanks?????

Okay I have three tanks that I want to get floating plants for...here is the run down

Tank #1
one Betta
fluorite substrate
two Coralife Colormax 6,700K full spectrum lamps, 10 watts each
java moss, ludwigia and lutea planted

one Betta
incandescent blue plant bulb by aqua culture (planning on getting a coralife for it)
fluorite substrate

no substrate
currently cycling
fluorescent light (not sure the wattage bulb just came with hood)
will house a Betta


What is a good floating plant to get that would suite all three tanks?

Where can I buy the plants online? (I dont live near a LFS LPS or chain Pet stores)

Thanks for the help

I've had a lot of success with both hornwort and water lettuce. Duckweed would also be a good choice.

Water sprite is also a nice floating plant, my beta and gouramis love it.

I purchased from www.liveaquaria.com and the plants arrived packaged beautifully (and properly). They are very heathly plants but a bit pricey. I have another shipment coming in from www.bayleesfishees.com.
Bayleesfishees has GREAT pricing and free shipping w/ orders $20.00 or more. I'll update once I receive.

My plants from bayleesfishees arrived in very good condition, and the price is GREAT! I will definitely purchase from there again.
