Floating plants for tank with bio wheel?

In my fifteen gallon and forty six gallon tank, I have a bio-wheel filter. When I put in floating plants, the current always pushes them to the back of the aquarium where there's no light and they die. Do any of you know any floating plants that this will not happen to?

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

Not reallt. You could use a food clip and strategicly secure the plant or use cotton thread and tie it to the center brace i did this, it was lovely.

How about Amazon Frogbit? Looks like miniature lily pads that only get to be about the size of a quarter. It will float around with the current though as any floater will probably do, so you may want to restrain it to the part of your tank that you want.

There comes a point in your life when you realize
who matters,
who never did,
who won't anymore....
and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past.
There is a reason they didn't make it to your future.

Divert the flow with plastic or something else that's sturdy yet bendable.
