I hear ya! It would be nice to be able to try everything out for a while! Never underestimate the power of floating plants for shade - frogbit can be deadly O.O (umm, to plants, not angelfish ^.^)

The only problem I see with frogbit and the like is that I keep my water level really high and the surface disturbance is pretty high from my filter, and I like it filled almost to the top.

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

I have Frogbit in my 10 gallon. I keep my water level just where you cant see it because of the top rim. It does great for me in that tank. Grows like a freaking weed in fact! The roots are soo long on it that they are touching the substrate and curling up. Its like a root jungle in there. LoL

Also it does appreciate brighter lights soo that be a plus for ya since you are looking to increase them.
