    hello, I would like to add floating plants to my aquarium but I use a canister filter with a spray bar and use a 8 inch air stone. Any suggestions for plants or what I could do?

    Hornwort, a bit messy but it should do well.

    Water wisteria is said to be a floating plant too, i dunno i plant mine but its worth looking into

    Can you explain what you mean by "high surface tension"?

    Lol, I probably worded it wrong. What I meant to say is that my tank has a high current and on the surface my tank has a lot of bubbles/ water movement and I just wanted to know if there are any floating plants that can survive

    Apologies for the late reply but you can probably keep any floating plants alive if you keep them out of direct contact with the spray bar.

    There are many ways to do this but I buy my plant guards from Han Aquatics. I did the airline, suction, string, whatever tries and they didn't work as well.
