Sorry I missed your floater question.

I LOVE dwarf water lettuce.

I love salvinia minima.

You could also float some neat plant like hydrocote.

For filling height in this tank, if you can, do it with plants. They will also help filter your water. I have the same tank, and my first scape used rocks and drift wood to build height. I redid it with plants and it looks far better and my fish don't hide nearly as much. Jungle Val is a good one. My vals, rotala, and cabomba all touch the top, and it looks great. My journal is HERE.

Also, I'd recommend skipping floating plants in this thank. The design will cause problems with that.

Your tank looks awesome, I may have to slowly re-scape ine.

I kinda wish i had a darker gravel but it would be a pain to change it now.... all in good time

The white gravel will really wash out the CPDs, they don't seem to mind but they won't look as pretty as over a dark substrate.

I keep my CPDs with white clouds, have for about a year now and the white clouds really help the CPDs to get over their shyness. I've since added some gold ring danios and they blend in quite well and everyone seems to get along quite nicely.

I loved everything about my 12 gallon edge, except maintaining it

Well I have 12 yellow shrimp and 12 cpd's on route. Ill leave the neons for tank mates for now.

Blink - how big is your tank? How many CPDs/white clouds do u have?

How hard would it be to change the substrate? Would it mess up the tanks cycle and remove to much bacteria? Or would it best to just slowly swap it out.
