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.

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.
