Anacharis is great for sucking up ammonia, as are other fast growing stems like water wisteria. Floaters like duckweed, water lettuce, etc are great too.

You should really lose that Silver Dollar. It will eat your plants and it needs a much larger tank. It's cruel keeping it in a 15 gallon. Seriously.
