Hi Kibblemania1414,

It's sort of like asking what is your favorite kid! Also a lot of what works in a tank depends on my water, light, CO2, ferts, etc. Here are some of my favorites:

Soft water; medium-high light, CO2
Pogostemon stellatus
Pogostemon erectus
Limnophila aromatica
Ludwigia glandulosa
Blyxa japonica

Soft water, medium-low light, no CO2
Cryptocoryne wendtii (Green, Bronze, Red)
Microsorum pteropus ('Wendelov'; 'Trident', 'Needleleaf', regular)
Ludwigia arcuata
Mayaca fluviatitis

Nymphoides sp 'Taiwan'

75 Gallon, 2X55W AH Supply CF 8800K, 1XMarineland Doublebright, 2X Marineland 350 Magnum; 45 Gallon Tall, 96Watt AH Supply CF 6700K; 30 Gallon Long; 2X36W AH Supply CF 6700K; 20 Gallon, 1X26W AH Supply LED kit; all with Press. CO2; (Calcined) Montmorillonite Clay
