Plant Ids

Hi,

I've been trying to scape my new tank similar to the one in the picture.
most of the hardscape is complete, however i'm struggling to decide what plants to use. especially the background plants. Can you guys provide some suggestions?

Pogostemon Erectus seems like a good background plant that I always wanted to try out. Rotala Indica or green is a good one too.

Taiwan moss is on the wood.
Cardamine lyrata on the left which is similar to Moneywort
Hydrophila polysperma 'Sunset on the left side of the break.
Think Wisteria is behind the sunset plant
Think Brazil Milfoil (Myriophyllum aquaticum) is 1st tall plant on left.

Could put some anubias on the wood.

Make it your own and just use the placement.

Is yours going to be non Co2 tank with excel?

Then I think Cabomba furcata or green version would look good for the back.

Some Hygrophila sp. 'Porto Velho' look good in the front.

The plants in the pic look like low light plants. Hygro sunset has very little color thus the light is probably low too.
