The aeration in a planted aquarium is usually regulated by live plants just as it would have been in the wild. Some of the floating aquarium plants regulate oxygen so that the fish can breathe.Riccia fluitans is a liverwort that’s been getting a lot of attention lately as a ground cover. When tied to rocks it does make an attractive lawn plant in the aquarium, but for years it’s been kept floating, which is the way it grows naturally. In the past this plant was commonly called crystalwort, and it is referenced in aquarium literature from as early as the late 1800s. It’s a particularly useful plant in the breeding of some fish, as the dense mats can hide tiny fry much better than most plants, even other floating ones.Another one of my personal favourites! In The Netherlands, we call it ‘water pest’, and for a not without reason; it grows like crazy. Anacharis can be left floating, but grows fine when planted as well – the parts bought from the store usually die off quite quickly, but they are replaced by fresh, live leaves. If you own herbivorous or omnivorous fish, growing Anacharis in a separate aquarium can provide you with a steady amount of (free) healthy fish food, but the plant looks great in planted tanks as well and can help compete with algae because it grows so quickly.. This plant can be planted, or left alone to just float. Because you have the option to let this plant float on it’s own, this makes a perfect live plant for an aquarium that doesn’t have any gravel or substrate.The key to maintaining floating plants in the freshwater aquarium is to ensure that your lighting is bright enough. Light is the most important nutrient that live plants need to grow and floating plants have the best access to light because they float on the surface of the tank water. Floating plants can be used to shade certain parts of your aquarium if you have fish that do not like bright lighting – they can also be used to provide cover for newly-hatched fry so the other fish in your tank do not eat them. Floating plants are also a great option for herbivorous species of fish, especially since many of them grow quickly.When selecting live plants for the aquarium, have a real floating plant like water sprite or hornwort in the collection you plant. These plants hide new born babies (fry), the fish will be encouraged to breed and baby fish (aka fry) grow will be more likely to grow up in your tank. This is a great experience for children, and something to think about for adding interest in a community aquarium.
