    What are some good floating plants that will help with ammonia and excess nutrients? Do live plants also help with diatoms? Also, where can I find floating plants and how do I get rid of snails that come with them?

    To help with ammonia, nitrites and nitrate you want fast growing plants so salvinia and duckweed are excellent. (though in a cycled tank you shouldn't have any ammonia or nitrite)

    Live plants help with algae because they use up nutrients and they reduce lighting.
