Im thinking of putting a pond on my patio using one of those big blue tubs w rope handles. Any plant guys have suggestions for floating plants that might do ok receiving only a few hours of angled sunlight daily?

A great, great majority of aquatic plants will do just fine in "shade". Remember, we typically run our tanks with 30-200 PAR lighting. The sun provides anywhere from 500-2000 PAR, depending on weather, latitude, and shade. I would bet the deepest, darkest recesses of the Amazon jungle are still getting 500PAR minimum.
