    I think a floating island of Darlingtonia californica would be nice. I wonder if you can also grow some Utricularia with the bladders growing into the water, making the island resemble a Physalia physalis.

    I'm also surprised the PPM isn't too high. That's higher than my tap water (maybe I just have good water). The fact that it's always moving is surely a benefit.

    I'd keep my eye on the bottles keeping it afloat. UV rays make plastic, especially plastic not designed for the outdoors, extremely brittle. If enough of them crack your island could sink.

    if you were bothered about the bottles cracking and sinking you could buy a can of expanding foam and fill them with that

    @fdfederation you could have just said a man of war jellyfish.

    @JRFxtreme you should post some pics of it floating in the lake! Awesome idea BTW.

    There's a large pond some ways from me near and office complex, that I was considering spiking with U. gibba and Aldrovanda. Probably should not, but the only thing in there is algae and a few mosquito fish.
