This is a pic of my tank atm.

each bay is 17x17x25cm, I have been hunting and searching for plants that I think would be suitable, and so far my choices are.

HC Cuba or hair grass
Ludwigia repens
Dwarf Anubias
Staurogyne sp

does anyone have any pros/cons or info on these plants? recommendations, pretty much anything. Even different plants, I'm open to suggestions.

I think because of the limited area anything too big and leafy will blot out the light from HC or HG.

TIA!! =)

I love my Anubias. They grow well, but you have to keep the roots out of the substrate. I attached mine to driftwood with some black string. My fish love swimming in and around them and under the roots that grow towards the substrate. I've had them for about three years and probably could populate several tanks from the extra ends that have grown. They do stay small, but they will extend the main stalk once they start to grow. I'm not much for hair grass or ludwigia, but I think you could grow it easily with the set up that you have (Very Nice btw).
So many fish, so little time...
