|sowNreap||I'm definitely no plant expert but what about Alternanthera reineckii. I really like the look of the reddish/purplish underside of the leaf with the green on the top side. Makes a nice contract. Mine stay that way even with low light but I think with higher light the whole plant gets more red.|

I would suggest the dwarf Lilly, its really easy and adds some really cool features to your tank, ive got 2 of those bulbs sprouting at the minute and i cant wait for them to get full sized! the last dwarf lilly i had i loved

You can get the tiger lotus from Walmart. They are sold as bulbs, and usually conform to their environment. Meaning they will stay small if they don't enough room to grow. Plus, if you let them reach the top, they can flower. I've only seen the flower in people or white though.

The Rotala macranda, Rotala magenta & Ludwigia repens x arcuata all look nice! Hopefully my lfs has either of these in stock.
Tiger lotus is nice also, but I don't think I'd be able to make room for it in my tank

How about Tiger Lotus, Red (Nymphaea zenkeri)
I have a 10G low light with a small bulb with 5 leaves each averaging 3/4" square.
these plants are undemanding and can be trained to stay low to the substrate.

What plants for a small tank that have color?
While I do enjoy looking at my tank, I feel as if it is lacking some more color? Everything is very green! only thing that has a slight hint of red is my Rotala Indica. Anyone have any suggestion for plant species with more color? tank is an 8 gallon & the footprint is kind of cubeish. No special substrate just sand, c02 via reactor, seachem comprehensive, 1 15watt 6500cfl & one 13 watt cfl 6500
