Looking for suggestions for my 36G

So I'm looking for some plant suggestions. This tank wasn't scaped in any way, just random stuff I found locally thrown together. The foreground is pygmy chain swords waiting to fill in.

I'm looking for something that can grow underneath the kleiner sword in the middle. Right now I have dwarf sag growing to the right, it's not actually that dwarf. Some of the leaves are 10+" tall, which is kinda weird since it's from the Florida Nurseries. Anyways, I was thinking needle leaf java fern or something bushy around the base of the kleiner.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Maybe you already know, but it looks like the kleiner bar sword currently has emersed growth leaves; those will be replaced by submerged growth now that the sword is under water. These leaves have a longer leaf blade and little to no stem; they will be sort of ribbon-like growing out from the base. My point is that they will make the sword look more filled-in at the bottom. I don't know if that helps at all. Personally, I think it looks nice now, and will look better once the pygmy chain sword fills in.

Joy to the fishes!
