I think brown spots are an indication of potassium deficiency. Even if it's not necessarily the problem, I think it's hard to overdose on potassium.

What are your tank dimensions? I think many crypts could work. Wendtii, petchii, beckettii, or maybe lucens could all be good candidates. Depending on how high the tank is, some taller varieties of...
