What are your favorite floaters? I am trying to decide between Dwarf Water Lettuce, Red Root Floaters, Frogbit, and Salvinia in my 40g. Since my tank has a lid that collects plenty of condensation, I'm thinking Salvinia might be best idea. Thoughts?

I like salvinia because it's pretty easy to manage compared to other floaters, but it does not like moisture on the upper side of its leaves, so your lid might pose a bit of a problem. I know I get a cottony fungal growth on mine if it's too humid under there.

Hm, good to know. I may just have to order some and see how it goes.

EDIT: Maybe I'll just order a variety and let them duke it out hunger games style and see what thrives.
