Too many floating plants a problem?
I'm starting up a new 55g in a couple days and I ordered some floating water sprite and received much much more than I anticipated ,it COMPLETELY covers the surface,also received quite a bit of duckweed as hitchhikers. My question is can the surface being swamped like this cause oxygen issues or any other problems? I know fish love floating plants but this seems like too many, don't really want to throw any out. Not really worried about them blocking light out either as a have low light plants growing in substrate.
Floating plants work very well in my tanks. The fish seem to be much more at ease and its good for your water quality. I to have water sprite in one tank. Watch the rooted plants below for growth keeping an eye out for algae. Every water change thin out the as needed keeping smaller plants. They can get way out of control really fast. On average you can toss up to a gallon size container away a week once established.
