I've read that hornwort can house lots of different microfauna that fish like to snack on. Are there other plants that are known for lots of microfauna as well? I can't seem to find much information on it.

Probably all plants will (especially with smaller tissue) as well as Indian almond leaves

Mosses and the roots of floating plants, and anything with fine, delicate leaves. Leaf litter can also house microfauna.

I've purposefully added daphnia, gammarus, and cyclops from wild bodies of water before as well.

I have a pond in my neighborhood that I know has some daphnia (or at least something similar), so I think I'll try that. Thanks for the idea!
