Re: Floating cover

The one I've had the most success with has always been the water hyacinth (Eichornia Crassipes), the only problem being the headrrom it needs. It also happens to be the best nitrate scrubber there is and has wonderful, long floating roots (which also go an unusual dark violet when the water is really clean:-).)

Does anyone know of any good floating plants for VERY soft water (straight RO)?
I have tried najas and it just melted. Water sprite seems to be surviving, but
not growing very much. I am using bare bottom tanks so it needs to be plants
that don't need to be planted (I really don't feel like dealing with pots...).
