Looking for a nice top water plant

I have a 125 gallon tank. I was thinking duckweed, but I am not sure if that is exactly what I want. I have 4 gourami and 10 tiger barbs.

What other plants look nice that float?

I have done a water test and change my ph has been steady at 8.2. What plants would enjoy a higher ph? My tank has been running at 125 gallons( converted from a 6 year old 20 gallon) for 10 weeks.

most plants will do just fine with ph 8.2 give them a good light and some time to settle in :)
