Defo water lettuce! I have it in my tank. Great stuff, and so easy to care for.

It's lovely! Does it need a lot of light?

I don't think so. Mine has been in my soroity which has just 2 25w bulbs in it, and has spread nicely. I think it may need a LITTLE more light than it has, as the roots have recently become very short, but otherwise seems to be doing well.
