Floating Plants Question

  1. Anna94 Member Member

    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.
