Floating/surface plants help

Hi, I want some floating or surface plants for my tropical aquarium, I like water Lily's but I how only found some that would over run the tank easily, all suggestions appreciated. I prefer plant like Lily type things rather than floating like duck weed type of thing.

Banana plant all the way. Easy to grow and pretty awesome. Can be planted in the ground with leaves growing up or floated (Im not sure how you do it floating)

Hygrophyla difformis will float and is not a demanding plant.

Get some frogbit, cool stuff and it floats in the tank, plus it gives some hiding/breeding spots for your fish.
