Looks like all but Hoppy assumed you were talking about nitrites. For it is a new tank.

If your talking about nitrite, wait till your biological filtration becomes mature. If your talking about nitrates, then hoppy had the right idea, unless your nitrate production is much faster than your plants can consume it, in which case you need to do water changes, or make your plants grow faster (lighting, CO2, ferts, etc).

But to answer your original post, I like salvinia.
