Background crypt for 55g?


Need some ideas for a background crypt or bulb plant (anything other than stems) that would be in the back middle of a 55g.
I think the crypt I have on one end is balinese so something to complement that

Suggestions?

existing crypts:
Florida sunset
Willissi
Lutea
Wendtii bronze
Balinese



Thanks all !!!!

C. spiralis, C. cordata, C. ciliata, C. aponogetifolia, or C. usteriana would work.

I would get more c. Balansae - they get to 3" long. Crinum natans or calamistratum is another (expensive) choice. Vals are cheap and plentiful.
