Im working on setting up a 130G high tech tank with CO2. Ill have aquasoil and plan to dose thrive ferts. My lights are planned to be Twinstar 900E Vr III. Im starting to think about plants and want a few plants that will send up floating leaves like classic "Lilly pads"....Suggestions on specific plants to get?

Tiger lotus and dwarf aquarium lily are the only 2 that send up lily pad like leaves. Or only one... they are both Nymphaea. If you don't mind the leaves being on a big stalk all chained together then Brazilian pennywort is another option.

Nymphea lilies are usually the "water lilies" that you see in household aquariums. A 130 gallon might be big enough for real water lilies but they'd block out most of the light once they put out flowers, I wouldn't really suggest them for tanks anyway.
