I have some Pistia Stratiotes, it's fairly attractive from below the water line, all you see are roots, but it's certainly more interesting than duckweed. I've also got some riccia fluitans, I like the way it looked at first, but now that it's filling in a little I'm not so sure how useful it is as a floating plant, I'd prefer it to be rooted.

Java Moss is kind of interesting, it can float or it can be tied to rocks or driftwood, it would float below the surface rather than floating on top of the water though.

Java moss can be hard to prune, it wants to fall all apart and float everywhere, but if you've just got one clump and want to remove it all you have to do is yank it out. Riccia is kind of the same way but very fragile, it wants to break into a thousand pieces any time you touch it.
