floating plants compatible with surface movement?

I want to get some water lettuce, large lily and/or water hyacinth, but I wonder if they will just get pull under by my HOB. This happens with smaller plants I try to float (like egeria densa). I was hoping water lettuce etc. would work b/c of their large size.

Water sprite and Salvinia tend to work well.
