Background plant suggestions

Picture is of my first tank (~6 months in). I like the wild look, but I'm not thrilled with the swords. Would like something that adds a little more character (texture?) to the background. Any ideas? Light is on the high end, co2 around 25-30ppm, dry dosing ferts.

A lot of bunch plants (Ludwigia, rotala, etc.) do well to texture a background. I'm a big fan of Dutch style so most of my tanks have many different colors and textures in the background. If you're looking for something easy, though, Valisneria do well.

Green Camboba is really lush I think better then Rotala.

So a guy walks into a Pet Store

Guy: "I have Algae on my drift wood!"

Pet Clerk: "Take two Plecos and call me next week."
