Needing some planting ideas

Both on what to get and where to get it from. Here's the tank:

An album of the tank:

I'm up in Fort Collins but travel down to Denver frequently so can go to any of those stores on the weekend. Great White and D&G don't have many low - medium light plants right now so, I've got a little stumped. Almost got some large anubias tonight, but then decided to ask for some opinions.

The Tank:
92 Gallon 1/4 Circle (Bowed Front)
36" Aqueon Modular LED (2xDaylight and 1xColormax bulbs) and a
24" Coralife T5 (1xDaylight and 1xColormax).
EcoComplete Substrate
No CO2

The Tank is 24" deep and the lights on it now provide about low to medium light throughout the tank. I have some very active catfish and barbs in the tank so plants with good roots are appreciated.

Vals might be a good idea or some Aponogeton bulbs. I've had both in my low light tanks and they took off. Crypts are another good idea the have pretty heavy roots and won't be knocked around to easily. Tying some java fern to you drift wood could work. Nice piece of drift wood by the way.
