I would love to have these but I have a tank lid. I've heard they don't tolerate water dripping on them, what's your experience?

The two tanks that I have RRF are covered fully. They’re spreading like weeds

Dwarf water lettuce will out compete everything, I just took another half gallon or more out of one tank.  Probably another half gallon extra in a different tank.  Problem is it will choke out almost all the light and ferts.  I have to stay on top of it.  Let it slide for a bit and suddenly the entire surface is covered again... 

Otherwise pothos is good for it as well.  And pretty neat roots.
