Not very well but it`s the first live plant I ever had, it lost a lot of needles and made a mess and about 80% or more died within 2-3 weeks so I just got rid of it until I can afford the proper lighting for live plants which I believe was the problem. But yes the frog liked to use it to hang out near the surface, they also like to use the filter intake tube which is easy for them to hang off of because I wrap mesh around it to avoid the frogs legs getting sucked in and they also like to use the mystery snails to hold themselves up.

When you decide to get plants again, I wouldn't recommend the hornwort. Your frogs were a big part of it losing needles and stuff. Its just too fragile for the clumsy oafs, lol. Go with something a bit sturdier. There are alot of low light plants you could try without buying new lighting. Try sprite or anacharis floating, that way its closer to the light. I keep my sprite hooked onto a suction cup hook just so it doesn't just free float.

Ok thank you. I was looking for another floating plant for that frogs that didn't have needles and I have asked all of the local stores and also the stores in the two major cities nearest me and they are all telling me that they usually don't get anything floating except hornwort until spring or summer for some reason so I guess I will wait.

Anacharis can be planted or floating, same as sprite. Wisteria is another but its also a bit fragile. I had 7 frogs at the time with the wisteria and they destroyed it. Plants and active frogs take patience, lol. Newly planted get uprooted alot until roots take hold. If you want something that roots fast or grows quick, of all the different ones I have, the anacharis has exploded in very short time.

I have pots of Brazilian Pennywort, Dark Red Ludwigia and Java moss in my ADF female tank. I started with these to see what plants would hold up to frogs diving down into them and so far the plants have done well. I get a few floating leaves here and there but no broken stems.

After Ohio thaws out and we start having done normal temps that won't threaten plant life during delivery I want to order frog it and water lettuce to float in their tanks.

Be careful with the frogbit. It can take over a tank and be extremely hard to get rid of. Idk anything about lettuce.
