Thumbs up Looking for some opinions..........

......... on some plants I can add to the left and right of my tank.
I am thinking some thing fast growing in the moderate light group.
I am running 120 watts of T-10's so right about 2.2 wpg.

Here is a pic of my current scape and I am waiting for the moss wall to grow back in.

I am wanting to get something for each side to cover the equipment a little.

<<I for got how cloudy it got when I did the re scape>>

Thanks in advance!

you could use heteranthera zosterifolia, rotala rotundifolia, limnophila sessiliflora, ceratopteris thalictroides, any kind of vallisneria or sagittaria, most echinodorus sp, you name it.

I would personally recommend r. rotundifolia and some italian vals, they grow relatively fast and look good no matter what. Also give ludwigia repens a try, it's one of my favorite plants, and even though it doesn't grow all that fast, it looks awesome!

The moss wall is always a neat idea but I wouldn't include it in a "scape" myself. Also the wood seems to be either too long/big or just not arranged in an aesthetically appealing position.

For what its worth anyway

How about some water sprite, its one of the fastest growing plants and it will get as big as you let it.
