Amazon frogbit

I have a 10 gallon betta/ ember tank. I want to add amazon frogbit because I need some plants in the upper part and I love that it grows vines hanging down. I have low light plants below, Java fern, Christmas moss, crypts and Anubis. I have a full spectrum light that I can intensify do the plants below get light? Or maybe I can buy a ring that keeps the plant contained to one area so it doesnít suck all the light from aquarium? Or Iíll just remove it as it grows? Any advice? Will it totally lock all light if I keep it thin?

Check on YouTube "no filter, no co2 betta tank" and you will have all the answers you need, specifically about the ring and light

I don't bother corraling my floating plants. I just thin out every week.

I wouldn't bother with corraling mine if I didn't run HOBs which they all hate
