    If so, what are they?

    I have some ludwigia floating right now because it won't stay planted. My tank is 20g and with two bubblers and the filter, there is a lot of surface movement. I would like some floating plants but haven't been able to find any that sound like they would be ok with the movement/popping bubbles. Suggestions?

    The floats will do better if they are anchored on something near the surface.
